Moving Into Our Future
Sometime in the next year the Headquarters of the Unitarian Universalist Association will move from its historic address at 25 Beacon Street, on Beacon Hill, to 24 Farnsworth Street, in the heart of the “Innovation District” of Boston, and into its future. Unitarian Universalism and the UUA have a long and storied history in Boston and New England, which won’t change; the goal of the move is to improve the UUA’s ability to provide services and programming for Unitarian Universalism. – Ed.
The UUA Board of Trustees voted unanimously Thursday night, March 14, to purchase 24 Farnsworth Street in Boston. The neighborhood is known by several names—the Seaport District, the Innovation District, the Fort Point Channel, and South Boston. It is an emerging neighborhood, near the Federal Courthouse, the Boston Convention and Exhibition Center, and the Boston Children’s Museum.
The board also authorized the subsequent sale of the UUA’s four buildings on Beacon Hill, including its historic headquarters building, 25 Beacon Street. (Read the full story on UU World.)
