Fair-goers who visited the Gary Log House last week got a glimpse into Auglaize County’s past in the “Historical Church” exhibit put on by area historical societies.

Jill Baumer, of Minster, said she enjoyed viewing the collection of churches that may or may not still exist within the county.

“It was just interesting to see the older pictures of the churches when they were originally built,” Baumer said. “Some you can recognize, and some you don’t even recognize anymore.”

Baumer said she recognized part of the building that still exists at a historical church in Moulton, and she enjoyed seeing the church photographed in its original state.

As she was raised in New Knoxville, Baumer was particularly interested in learning about the First Church of New Knoxville, where she was confirmed.

“Now I’m a member of the Catholic church in Minster, so I have kind of have a unique perspective of being a member of two different churches in Auglaize County,” Baumer said.
