Lesley moving old church to create art complex

Almost 150 years ago a team of horses moved North Prospect Church a mile up Massachusetts Avenue in Cambridge to Porter Square. Next month, the 188-ton church will be on the move again.

In early December, Lesley University will move the church at 1797-1803 Massachusetts Ave. to the south side of the property to make way for a new four-story building that will house its art institute, which has been known as the Art Institute of Boston for 100 years.
