The house
dated the decidedly more colorful palette of the nineteenth century. The exterior was returned to the vibrant Victorian color scheme we think Mrs. Eddy would have known. At the end of the hard-fought decade of the 1880s, Mrs. Eddy withdrew from the hectic demands of Boston. A few weeks after leaving Massachusetts in May 1889, she rented this furnished house for herself and her small staff. This house stands as a reminder of the work Mrs. Eddy carried out for the better part of two decades while living in Concord.

2. The life of Mary Baker Eddy. Mary Baker Eddy (1821-1910) was an influential American author, teacher, and religious leader, noted for her groundbreaking ideas about spirituality and health, which she named Christian Science. She articulated those ideas in her major work, Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures, first published in 1875. Four years later she founded the Church of Christ, Scientist, which today has branch churches and societies around the world. In 1908 she launched The Christian Science Monitor, a leading international newspaper, the recipient, to date, of seven Pulitzer Prizes.
