Marietta was the site of the first Christian service in the Northwest Territory? Really? How is this known to be true? It sounds like something someone decided, similar to how Columbus discovered America.

What an honor for the church, and for Marietta. There certainly is beauty and serenity like no other I've entered. If this honor is bestowed, as citizens of the area need to embrace the honor.

What is 'significant' about the space is the 'space'- why does it need a designation- ? - So corporate...

Actually, I'm guessing Schoenbrunn Village was the site of the first Christian service. It was not yet the Northwest Territory, but it was there before Marietta was settled and Schoenbrunn was settled by Moravian Christians.

An "altar" is a thing that's in a church. "Alter" means to change. Come on, Times.
