Lesley University is rolling the Old Cambridge Baptist Church, later called North Prospect Church, to its new location where it will be incorporated into a $46 million arts center.

The Lunder Arts Center has been in the works for seven years but the most complicated step in the project is relocating the church, which will serve as a focal point for the new building. The church was moved along steel beams at a rate of one inch per minute. The whole process took hours but it was still much faster than the building’s first move in 1867.
