Churches 1


  This category of postcards is, to put it mildly, MIND BOGGLING and since it is relatively easy to boggle my mind the only way I could arrange these cards was by alphabetical order, (sort of). I know  there are a lot of churches that are not in their correct areas so, please, excuse my ignorance.

         Hyde Park

   The Hyde Park Baptist is the first church founded in the Northwest Territory (from the Ohio River to the Pacific Ocean). On January 20, 1790 the Columbia Baptist Church was started by 9 members of the pioneer settlement led by Steven Gano a surgeon in George Washington's Army. On two acres of land near Lunken Airport where this church stood is a plaque commemorating this event. Due to continual flooding in this area, the church was moved in 1808 to Duck Creek and Edwards Roads and the church was renamed The Duck Creek Baptist Church. Population shifts by the 1870's caused the church to move again. In 1875 it was again moved to Grace Avenue in Mt. Lookout and was renamed the Duck Creek Baptist Church at Mt. Lookout.
   In 1904 the church voted to move once again to Hyde Park. The Chapel was completed in 1907. Construction began on the main sanctuary and fellowship hall in 1924 and was completed in 1926. Located at 3460 Michigan Ave., the last 2 photos above show the church as it looks today.

  The next 14 cards are of Christ Episcopal Church on 4th Street. I wanted to point out a couple of things. If you look closely at the 3rd and 4th cards you will be surprised to see they are the same image. This was probably an accident during the printing process, but it could have been deliberately done to make it look differently than the cards put out by other publishers. The 5th card shows the correct view. You will also notice that the 1st card looks a lot different than the others. The building to the right of the church is the Parish House and was obviously built into a more imposing structure.
