St. Louis Church

The St. Louis parish was founded in 1870 with this church built in 1930. The area that the church is standing on was once the home to St. Ludwig’s Kirche, a Roman Catholic Church for a Campbellite group which was a sect that sought to return to more primitive aspects of Christian teachings. The two groups merged in 1870 to create the parish that stands today.

The church is a Florentine style limestone building and today the church still conducts mass and serves as offices for the Roman Catholic Archdiocese of Cincinnati.
