Last year, in celebration of the centennial of women gaining the right to vote in the United States, the National Trust called for submissions to this campaign, an effort to identify and highlight 1,000+ significant places that help tell a fuller American story. Both 8 Broad Street and 400 Beacon Street were submitted, and both are now listed on the National Trust website. This is a well-deserved recognition of Mary Baker Eddy’s contributions to this nation’s history.
