On the Move

On August 21, 1888, the Universalist Church moved from Lafayette Square to its present home on Inman Street.  The picture above shows the church traveling through Central Square.  Today, the church at 8 Inman Street is now St. Mary’s Orthodox Church.

    This image is especially cool because it show both halves of the church. The move had to be completed in a timely fashion–the Mutual Life Insurance Building at the corner of Mass. Ave. and Inman Street was due to be built–its foundation had been dug–the church had to be around that corner before construction began, otherwise it wouldn’t have been able to make the turn.
