Prout Chapel, Bowling Green State University

(Bowling Green, OH)I always assumed that Prout Chapel on the main campus of Bowling Green State University was an original church around which the university grew up. Instead, I recently learned the building is "an authentic copy of the Firelands' churches constructed by Congregationalist settlers" who traveled to the region of Ohio from the state of Connecticut after the Revolutionary War.

Harrumph!

Still, it is a beautiful building, and the facility is used for weddings, concerts, and all sorts of public gatherings. If I could turn my neck about 120 degrees, I would be able to see Prout Chapel from my BGSU office. Alas, I lack such lumbar dexterity.
