Saint John's Ohio City
A New Life
An historic church that was the last leg on the journey to freedom for escaping slaves now sits boarded up. The hope of a life lived free and full of meaning gave the entire region its most honest name to date, Station Hope.While the faces of oppression in this country have changed and are always changing, the need for freedom remains the same.
The Episcopal Diocese of Ohio is looking to breath life into a space that once was an integral community site--new life based in the rich history of the past but pertinent to the Ohio City of the present and the future. To do anything of substance we need the stories, opinions, points of view, and any words of wisdom that the neighborhood has. Please feel free to share on this site.
