Boston is a odd place for adding new appreciation to one of my already favorite buildings in Ohio. I had learned of the high esteem of which Trinity Church had been praised and was desperate to see it. As I studied the architecture, I discovered that among many civic and other educational buildings, Orton Hall, on The Ohio State University Campus, shared the same, so called, Richardsonian Romanesque architecture. Trinity Church was built in 1872 and Orton Hall in 1893. I honestly find the style uncomfortably heavy and slightly ugly from the outside. But all you have to do is step into the tiny foyer and Geology Library to gain the full appreciation.
