Tours of St. James Meeting House offered as bicentennial activity



Published: Sat, February 5, 2005 @ 12:00 a.m.



BOARDMAN -- Boardman Park is conducting tours of St. James Meeting House, Boardman's oldest public building, as part of the township's bicentennial celebration.

The historic landmark, formerly know as St. James Episcopal Church, was built in 1829 by Henry Mason Boardman, son of Elijah, founder of Boardman Township.

The meeting house was the first Episcopal Church in Ohio and the first home of the oldest Episcopal parish in the Connecticut Western Reserve.

It was entered in the National Register of Historic Places in 1979 by the Heritage Conservation and Recreation Service, U.S. Interior Department, and is the only building or site in Boardman to be on the national register.

The tour will take about 45 minutes and may include a power point presentation, a tour of the meeting house and a tour of the museum of the Boardman Historical Society.

Tours are available to civic groups, school classes, church groups and other community organizations. Groups can schedule a tour by calling the Park District Office at (330) 726-8107 from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. Monday through Friday.
