Guided Tours Available Through October 31, 2015
The Mary Baker Eddy Historic House at 62 North State Street in Concord has again opened its doors for guided tours. For complete visitor information, please visit www.longyear.org/historic-houses and select the property in Concord, New Hampshire. Mary Baker Eddy, the founder of Christian Science, is widely recognized as one of the most influential women in the field of religion. She is the only American woman to found a worldwide religion. In this house, visitors see where Mrs. Eddy lived while she undertook a major revision of her primary work, "Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures." It was also in this home that she produced her book, "Retrospection and Introspection", and revised three of her other works. Mrs. Eddy greatly appreciated the Concord community and moved from this house to Pleasant View (no longer standing), her beloved home on the town’s outskirts, spending a total of 18 years in Concord. Longyear Museum, an independent, historical museum in Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, owns and maintains this house on North State Street. This is one of eight historic houses in which Mrs. Eddy lived in Massachusetts and New Hampshire that are part of the Longyear Museum collection. For over three-quarters of a century, Longyear Museum has served the public, providing exhibits, publications, and programs about the life and achievements of Mary Baker Eddy.
