Visiting Boston and the UUA

Important Update for Visiting 25 Beacon St.

The relocation of the Unitarian Universalist Association's (UUA's) headquarters to 24 Farnsworth St., in Boston, MA, is scheduled for mid-May. Due to this, tours of our current 25 Beacon St. building have been suspended as we prepare for this historic move. We plan to initiate regular tours of our new headquarters building after General Assembly.
 
During this years General Assembly, special tours of the UUA headquarters at 24 Farnsworth St. will be offered Wednesday, June 25 from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. and Sunday, June 29 from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m.
