Christ Episcopal Church, Dayton

Christ Episcopal Church, Dayton

Christ Episcopal Church has been a significant religious institution since its founding in 1830. The church was established through the efforts of Bishop Philander Chase, who invited Ethan Allen to Ohio to engage in missionary work. Originally situated elsewhere, the congregation moved to its current location in 1879. This relocation marked the beginning of a new chapter for Christ Episcopal Church, cementing its place in the heart of the community.

The church building is a quintessential example of Gothic Revival architecture, featuring a magnificent tower at the front entrance that captures the eye of all who pass by. This architectural style, known for its pointed arches, ribbed vaults, and flying buttresses, imbues the structure with an air of historical significance and spiritual grandeur

In 1913, Christ Episcopal Church faced a significant challenge when the Great Flood inundated its basement. This disaster necessitated a full renovation of the affected areas, ensuring the building could continue to serve its congregation. By November 1967, the church had reopened to the public, restored and ready to continue its mission of faith and service.
