400 Beacon Street: Re-Opening and Tours

History was made in Chestnut Hill, more than 100 years ago, by a most remarkable woman—the Discoverer, Founder, and Leader of Christian Science. And, starting May 2024, Longyear is delighted to welcome visitors to the beautifully restored and freshly interpreted Historic House that was Mary Baker Eddy’s final residence, from 1908 to 1910.
