Cincinnati Union Bethel is an organization that has provided community services since 1830 starting as an organization providing religious services to those who worked the river. Charles Phelps Taft and his wife were strong supporters of the organization and donated the land and funding to construct the 120-room building as a residence for single women. The 5-story building designed by architects Garber & Woodward is named after Anna Louise Taft Semple, the daughter of Mr. & Mrs. Charles P. Taft and opened its doors in 1909.
The Anna Louise Inn is still operated by Cincinnati Union Bethel and still provides safe and affordable housing for single women as well as support services to help their residents become independent and self sufficient. Cincinnati Union Bethel provides childhood educational programs as well.
