In 1887, Annie Rix Milnz attended a class led by Emma Curtis Hopkins in her home city of San Francisco. Applying her metaphysical teachings, Rix cured her own chronic headaches and deafness in one ear. Soon after she founded a New Thought bureau with classes, a bookstore, and more. Rix soon married and started traveling the country; the San Francisco center was operated by her sister, Harriet Hale Rix.
In the 1890s the bureau was renamed the "Home of Truth", and by 1903 there were eight Homes of Truth in the United States. The Homes of Truth attracted an almost exclusively female following.
