Marion, Indiana has has the great honor of being one location in which famous African-American architect Samuel Plato built several beautiful buildings. One of these buildings is the First Friends Church, located on 15th and Adams St. Last year, Marion endured a terrible storm which left the church, which is not currently in use, in further disrepair after years of standing vacant. This church has a very large sanctuary as well as having immense historical value to our community. This is one building SOS Marion is highly interested in saving in order to preserve our community’s heritage.
Below you can see the large stained glass window which can be seen damaged in the slideshow above.
