Do you know where the oldest church in Ohio is? While you might think it’s an ornate Catholic church, it’s actual a humble stone building hiding in a cemetery. The Old Wyandot Mission Church in Upper Sandusky is the country’s first officially recognized mission of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Today, it’s a historic landmark that houses artifacts from the early 1800s and still holds Sunday services during select times of the year. This is one stop every Ohio history buff needs to explore at least once.
