Round church. Round Church - Devil-Resistant

Richmond is noted for its 1813 Round Church. It's actually 16-sided. Legend says the church is 16-sided so the Devil could not find a corner to hide in. Henry Ford once tried to buy the church so it could be moved to Greenfield Village, Michigan. Richmond was formed (1794) from parts of the surrounding towns of Jericho, Williston, Huntington and Bolton.
