On the right is the Ebenezer Baptist Church at about 5419 Owl Creek Road. I believe it was a historical black church that was in part a mother church to Zion Baptist, which was on Mill Street near Delano Avenue in Chillicothe, and is now at the new south end of Clinton Road.

This church building was abandoned and decaying by the 2000s. I was trying to rescue a Victorian piano from the altar wall, but if it were even worth it, the gradually disappearing roof doomed it before I could get my act together. It was finally demolished about 2010.

The house is 5415 Owl Creek Road; see next photo.
