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.
