    First United Methodist Church

    Less appealing than the First Baptist but also standing on the periphery of the county courthouse is the First United Methodist Church. Similar to other United Methodist buildings throughout Kansas and Oklahoma, the Ottawa chapter has the medieval features of high gables and arched windows.

    First Baptist Church

    Always with an eye to rich religious architecture, the Ottawa streets have several gorgeous examples. Prominent among these is the First Baptist Church across the street from the county courthouse. Built of gray stone and featuring wonderful stained-glass and a corner belltower, this is by far the prettiest church architecture in town.

    Edward Haley Park

    Small, quaint but not entirely private, this tiny urban "park" stands in the hubbub of Main Street, but offers a shady if not peaceful retreat from the traffic of the downtown district. Full of benches and decorated by a plain fountain, visitors to historic Ottawa can take a break from their tour here without leaving the main attractions.

    This statue is on Main Street. I went off the street to go behind the 'Buffalo Statue' to show the papoose on her back.
