Next Event(s) June 8 – Field Trip: Mary Baker Eddy Church & House in Concord
Presenter: Nancy Root
Hosts: Mary Caverly and Pauline Chabot

"Come and see this mid 19th-century, Greek revival style home to learn about Mary Baker Eddy's eighteen years in Concord. It was here, at 62 N. State Street, that she undertook a landmark revision of her major work Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, revised several other of her writings, and wrestled with difficult organizational issues that led to her reorganizing her church in Boston. After renting this home for three years, she purchased and remolded a farmhouse on the outskirts of Concord. She resided in this house (no longer standing), which she named Pleasant View, for fifteen years. The tour of 62 N. State Street includes two period rooms, plus an exhibit on Pleasant View." The tour also includes an inside look at First Church of Christ, Scientist on State Street, Mrs. Eddy's gift to the citizens of Concord in 1904.
There is a $7 donation per attendee; Carpools leaving the Lane Tavern at 3:45 PM
