Buchan Building

Buchan Building

The Buchan Building is a recently renovated part of the First Unitarian Church and Eliot Center event venue. This is where the majority of middle school classes take place and is also home to our two large meeting spaces, The Sanctuary and Eliot Chapel. Along with our middle school classrooms spread out over three floors, you’ll find Fuller Hall, the light and open basement space that acts as a cafeteria and meeting space.
