St. Luke’s, Granville, will welcome visitors on September 8 and September 15 as part of Ohio Open Doors, the Ohio History Connection’s 10-day event when Ohio historic buildings and landmarks open their doors for special tours and events.
In 2014, St. Luke’s Church, along with Midstate Contractors, Inc. and NRC Engineering, received an Award of Merit from the State Historic Preservation Office of the Ohio History Connection for the preservation and restoration of its historic building.
Members and friends of the Historic Preservation Committee will welcome visitors as well as church members who are interested in learning more about the Greek temple design and stunning interior ornamental motifs and artifacts of this 1837 Episcopal church, and in hearing stories about some of the people who have been part of its 191-year history as a worshiping community!
The event will be held September 8 from 2 to 4 p.m., and Sept. 15 from 1 to 4 p.m. St. Luke’s is just east of Opera House Park, located at the corner of Broadway and South Main Street in Granville. An elevator entrance is on the west side of the church building adjacent to the park.
St. Luke’s Church, the Robbins Hunter Museum, the Buxton Inn and the Granville Historical Society’s sponsored events at the Old Academy Building and the Old Colony Burial Ground will all be part of Granville’s participation in Ohio Open Doors.
