Winding through the outdoor exhibits at Longyear Museum is a walkway of engraved bricks—“Living Stones” that bear the names of individuals whose lives have been enriched by the practice of Christian Science. Some are Christian Science practitioners, teachers, or nurses. There are also Sunday school teachers, fellow church members, and beloved family members. If you’d like to help further Longyear’s mission and at the same time honor a special friend or loved one, the Museum is accepting orders for the spring 2022 installation through April 15.

As January 1908 began, Mary Baker Eddy was preparing for a major move. She was leaving Pleasant View, her beloved New Hampshire home, to return to Massachusetts. She had been contemplating this move for some time, waiting on God, and now the way was clear. Please enjoy a video clip from the Longyear documentary “‘Follow and Rejoice’—Mary Baker Eddy: The Chestnut Hill Years” to learn about what may have motivated this important step.
