Name the Place! – The Winner Is…

Atwater Congregational Church, Ohio

The winner of our first Name the Place! competition is Laura Deeter, who correctly identified the building shown in the photo as Atwater Congegational Church, located in the town of Atwater in Portage County, Ohio. Congratulations to Laura, who wins her choice of Browntrout’s 2011 Wild & Scenic Ohio or Ohio Places calendar.

Atwater Congregational Church, which was completed and consecrated in November, 1841 stands on the west side of  Rte. 183, just south of Waterloo Road (Rte. 224). The front of the Greek Revival church faces east, so early morning usually provides the best lighting for photography.

Check back tomorrow for the next Name the Place! competition.
