The Walker Center
171 Grove Street; Auburndale, MA 02466
For almost 140 years, the Walker Center has opened its doors on its hillside in Newton, Massachusetts, for multiple ministries of Christian hospitality. The Walker Center provides meeting space and overnight accommodation space for conference groups. We provide space for groups who focus on issues related to peace, justice and social equality. We host a wide range of socially conscious groups and faith based organizations that benefit from the conference time to forward their programs or to strengthen their group interactions. Bed and Breakfast accommodations are provided for guests from around the world in a comfortable and affordable setting. Many of our guests come from faith organizations, continuing Walker’s historic hospitality role to the wider church.
