First Church

Collected by: Oberlin College

Archived since: Nov, 2015


Founded in 1834 and built from plans by noted architect Richard Bond, First Church is an Oberlin Historic Landmark and is on the National Register of Historic Places. The cornerstone was laid on June 17, 1842 and a tower, taken from an Asher Benjamin pattern book, was added in 1845. With original seating for 1,800, the Meeting House was the largest auditorium west of the Alleghenies. The church has been renovated and updated over the years, and was the only church in Oberlin until the 1950s.
