We’ll walk along Main Street, where PHLF has been leading a restoration effort through a Neighborhood Partnership Program funded by Huntington Bank and Armstrong. We’ll see the Butler County Courthouse of 1886 and two remarkable churches: St. Peter’s Episcopal Church, designed by William Halsey Wood in 1895-96, and St. Paul R.C. Church, designed by John T. Comès in (1909-11). Charles Connick designed a transept window in St. Peter’s in 1928, and Leo Thomas, with the firm of George Boos in Munich, Germany, designed the windows for St. Paul (pictured here). Organist Dennis Bell will perform at St. Paul.
