Mantua Center Christian Church

According to a sign at the church, this is the oldest Disciples of Christ church in Ohio. James Garfield spoke here. The basement was added in 1871, and the edifice has received two separate additions. The church is part of a small historic district also containing a civic center, a private home, a park, and a cemetery. The cemetery has graves of Revolutionary War veterans, attesting to the early settlement of this part of the Western Reserve.
