From the struggles of Mary Baker Eddy's early years in the wooded towns of rural New Hampshire to the spiritual accomplishments that followed, the time she spent in each of these eight historic houses constitutes a unique chapter in the life story of the Discoverer and Founder of Christian Science. In eight image galleries new and archival photos from the Longyear Museum collection offer a "virtual tour" of these important landmarks and their history.
Through over sixty new and archival photos, take a virtual tour of the places Mrs. Eddy called home - places where her growing conviction gained strength through experience, leading to the discovery of Christian Science; places where she healed and taught in order to establish her vision of a renewed Christianity. Images and captions present an up-to-date look at Longyear's houses, as these historic sites open their doors to welcome a new season of visitors.
Each of the eight houses represents a progressive stage in the life of the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science. The houses also give glimpses of everyday life during the 19th and early 20th centuries.View All News
