Long Description:
These magnificent stained glass windows are located on the front of a presbytarian church located on Main Street in Plain City, Madison County, Ohio. According to different sources, the church was established in 1893 and incorporated in Ohio. The building itself was constructed in 1895.

These windows can be admired either from outside or from inside.

We didn't find any information regarding the artist who created these windows.

According to Wikipedia, "previous to 1850, Plain City was a small trading point..., but after a trunk-line for the Atlantic and Great Western Railroad was laid through its corporation limits, business and manufacturing increased dramatically. The corporation limits were extended in 1868. As of 1875, the town contained five churches, one newspaper, one bank, one brick planing mill, one flour mill, four dry goods stores, three drug stores, three grocery stores, one jewelry store, one hotel, one carriage and wagon store, two harness shops, two wagon shops, two blacksmith shops, and a boot and shoe store.

The Farmers National Bank, a building at the intersection of State Route 161 and Chillocothe Street was built in 1902, and was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1995. The town clock, located at the same intersection, was dedicated on November 15, 1902.

Plain City and the surrounding area have a strong German and agricultural heritage. Plain City was a stop along the Pittsburgh, Cincinnati, Chicago and St. Louis Railroad that connected Pittsburgh to Chicago and St. Louis. An Amish settlement at Plain City, that was founded in 1896, finally dissolved in 2011".
