Abandoned Church in Hicksville

This is an abandoned church on the southeast corner of Maple Street and Smith Street (facing Maple) in the small town of Hicksville, Ohio. I thought the stop sign inside the front doors was odd.

There were a group of local people hanging out across the street who said it had never been used as a church during their lifetimes (they were in their early 20s), but that it had once been used as a Halloween haunted house attraction.


Update: In 2023, a Hicksville resident emailed me some history on the church. It had originally been Saint John's Lutheran Church. In 1953, the church moved to a new building and the old church was later donated to a community theater group called the Village Players. They've since moved to a new location, but continue to use the former church for storing props and equipment.

All of my prints are available framed or unframed. I use black metal Neilsen & Bainbridge frames with white cotton unbuffered museum board for the mat and backing board for maximum archival protection. Photographs are printed on an Epson pigment printer using Epson's archival ultrachrome inset for long life.
