Little Known Facts About the The Ayer Institute and the First Spiritual Temple Trust


As far as we know, the Temple which our benefactor, Marcellus Seth Ayer, built in Boston is largest and oldest Temple in the modern world devoted specifically for the cause and work of Spirit and to the promulgation of “The soul’s recognition of its immortality and the progressive development of its Divine attributes, powers, and potentials.”

On the 100th anniversary of the dedication of the building, in September 1985, the cornerstone was removed, and a time capsule was opened. A new time capsule was placed back behind the stone, to be opened again in September 2083.
