St. James Meeting House by Monnie Ryan


Available to buy on…

The St. James Meeting House, the oldest known structure in Boardman Township, Ohio, was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1979. At one time, it was the meeting place of the Parish of St. James, which officially was incorporated as an Episcopal Society in 1809. The last service was held in 1971 after the church built a new structure, and this meeting house was deconsecrated and slated for demolition. A community-wide campaign was launched by the Boardman Historical Society to save the old church, and in 1972 it was relocated to the Boardman Township Park where it now serves as a popular site for weddings, concerts and other special events.

    Thanks to you both! I’d have loved a few clouds in the sky, but this is northeastern Ohio so I’m happy just to have sunshine!
