Now as a Christian Science Reading Room it offers spiritual insights into the Bible and Mary Baker Eddy’s writings that can help uplift through difficult periods of history and present-day concerns. Visit us for history, inspiration, or just to sit down and take a rest! Many historic sites and community activities within walking distance.
