Third Presbyterian Church in Springfield
Description: The photograph shows the Third Presbyterian Church in Springfield. The church is located at 714 N. Limestone Street, which at the time was U.S. Highway Route 68. A street sign is visible. The Romanesque Revival building, completed in 1894, was one of the last designs by Springfield architect Charles Creager. Incorporated in his design are the use of brick, limestone, sandstone, terracotta, and a slate roof. Not visible in this shot is its unique octagonal onion dome. It has been speculated that the Dome of the Rock in Jerusalem was Creager's inspiration. View on Ohio Memory.
