Amidst Mansions

This part of Cleveland's 1881 Atlas map reveals that, in the late nineteenth century, Franklin Circle Christian Church was literally surrounded by mansions-- with most of them owned by Daniel Pomeroy Rhodes family members or their business associates. The Rhodes family, however, did not worship at Franklin Circle Christian Church. They were Episcopalian and worshiped at St. John's Episcopal Church several blocks north of the Circle on Church Street.
