On April 26, 2003 the Toledo Blade reported that "historical markers will be dedicated at three sites in northwest Ohio tomorrow as part of the Ohio Bicentennial Commission’s recognition of the state’s religious heritage... The area markers, which are among 12 in the state, are being placed at the Hindu Temple and Heritage Hall in Sylvania, the Islamic Center of Greater Toledo in Perrysburg, and at Seybert Memorial United Methodist Church in Bellevue... Dedication of the Hindu Temple’s marker... is planned for 11 a.m. tomorrow. The marker recognizes the temple, which was established in 1981, as the first in Ohio to serve both Hindus and Jains under one roof."
