MMN Item 6177 Zoom


Abdu'l-Baha (with the white beard) is with His interpreters and Sarah Farmer on the Green Acre property in Eliot in August 1912.

Sarah Farmer had visited 'Abdu'l-Baha in Haifa, Palestine (now Israel) a few years earlier, one of the earliest westerners to visit with him.

He returned her visit by going to Green Acre during his America tour in 1912. He remained for one week in Eliot, where many of the residents heard him speak on religious subjects and about the Baha'i Faith.
