United Church of Granville

A large Gothic structure made of blue Sandusky limestone; this church was dedicated in 1883 in Granville, Ohio.  Originally a Baptist church, it changed in September 2011 to it’s current name to reflect a commitment to it’s members and the multiple denominations they now belong to.  As their sign says, they are a welcoming and affirming congregation with a very rich history.  The church also helped establish Dennison University which is right up the hill from them.

The day we went was on a Saturday for their well known farmer’s market.  Because of that I wasn’t able to get some shots I would’ve liked to because of everyone being out with their wares, but here are a few images I’d like to share with you.  When we first saw the church we both said “European castle!” For some reason I said it reminded me of a French castle and that I expected crusaders to come out any minute.  Or at least Rapunzel from the tower.

    What a very pretty place of worship. They certainly don’t build them like that anymore…and it does look like a castle! I bet the inside is amazing!

    Wow! What an impressive structure! It’s cliche but they just don’t make that like that anymore. Great photos, Teri. Thanks for sharing.
