    History of Christian Science in Durango 

    Recorded interest in Christian Science in Durango, Colorado dates from the year 1897. The list of people attending informal meetings included twenty two names. By December 1900 public services were being held and on January 6, 1901 the Durango Christian Science Society was formed.  The Society established a Sunday School and held all its services at 300 Newman Block. In 1905 Wednesday evening meetings were established and a Reading Room was opened to the public in 1906.  In January 1907 a Board of Directors was appointed and 15 charter members signed the bylaws, formally establishing the new Church organization.  Among those were the Mayor and his wife, a newspaperman, teachers, a banker, musician and store owners. In 1921 the present site on Third Avenue was purchased and construction began in the fall of 1922. The edifice was dedicated in 1924. At that time Durango was a bustling mining and ranching town of 6,000.

    First Church of Christ, Scientist, Durango continues to serve Southwest Colorado with Sunday and Wednesday Evening Services, a Reading Room/Bookstore/Community Resource for spiritual seekers, enfolding the whole community in the message of the healing Christ.
