History[edit]

Pleasant View was Mary Baker Eddy's last home before moving to Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts in 1908. It was destroyed by the Christian Science Board of Directors and all evidence of it was buried.[5] The Directors in 1927 built a charitable retirement home for aged Christian Science practitioners on the site. The home and the large estate on which it stood were later sold to the State of New Hampshire, which later sold the building to a secular group which operates it as a profit-making retirement home.
