September 2013 - Columbus Ohio

The last service at Central Presbyterian Church in downtown Columbus was held in November 2011. The church was closed due to diminishing membership and rising maintenance costs. It was listed at $775,000.
CAPA, a Columbus arts group bought the 156-year-old building on South Third Street to be used as a a concert and recital hall.



It has stained glass windows that first were on exhibit at the 1893 World’s Fair, or World’s Columbian Exposition, in Chicago. It also had magnificent Hook & Hastings pipe organ that remains in working order.

  3. It's good that the church building will be preserved and re-used as a concert venue.

    «Louis» posted a rather homely-looking church in the Victorian village of Ferndale, California.
