1892 Old Baptist Church

The Late Gothic Revival style building has an interior Akron Plan design. Jacob Snyder was the architect of this popular design inspired by the Protestant Sunday School movement in the late 1800s. Snyder died before the building was completed. It has classic elements including a sloped sanctuary with curved pews and Sunday school classrooms radiating out from the main meeting area. The sanctuary also has a restored 1914 Moeller pipe organ, beautiful stained glass windows and a lead lined baptistery designed for full immersion.

Significant collections within the 1892 Old Baptist Church:

  • Renovated sanctuary pews and original lectern;
  • 1914 Moeller Pipe Organ
  • Lead glass skylights
  • Original hinges and hardware

The upgraded Community Room in the lower level contains new kitchen equipment, tables and chairs for public use. It is available for rental. For information and pictures please see Hall Rental
