404 East Main Street
The Central Christian Church (1912) is the town’s best example of Neoclassical design, including the dome, Ionic columns, and pedimented entrances. The sanctuary is a perfect square with semicircular seating rather than the usual center aisle arrangement. The floor is canted (sloped downward) as in a theater to focus on the altar and chancel area.
