The Founding Church of Scientology dedicated its new center last weekend in the renovated Fraser Mansion at 20th and R streets NW, near Dupont Circle.

The mansion, built in 1890 for former representative George S. Fraser, will serve as a spiritual center for local members and as the East Coast center for ministerial training, spokeswoman Sylvia Stanard said. The church, with about 3,000 members in the area, will continue to operate its "celebrity center" on 16th Street NW for counseling purposes, she said.

L. Ron Hubbard, who founded the Church of Scientology in Washington in 1952, was director of the first organized church, at 1826 R St. NW, from 1955 to 1959. Today, the organization lists 2,000 centers in 107 countries.
