Day 246 – Columbia Baptist
Today my friend Amy and I went to see a friend’s daughter in a ballet performance. They asked that no flash photography be used, so I tried to sneak a few photos, but sadly they did not come out very well. After the ballet, we drove around the historic district of Cincinnati known as Columbia-Tusculum. It’s filled with Victorian houses painted in every imaginable color combination, and wonderful old stone and brick buildings.
This is a shot of the entrance to Columbia Baptist Church. It was founded in 1788 and was the first protestant church established in the Northwest Territory. The stone work and large stained glass window were absolutely incredible. It appeared that the bell tower is now boarded up, but the church is still amazingly beautiful.
