This church was built in 1859. In short, the story goes that Archbishop John Baptist Purcell was on a boat at sea during a severe storm. He prayed to God that if they were to make it back to shore safely, he would build a church at the highest point in Cincinnati.
We wanted to do this one shot to get this great building on your radar, but know that we intent to return to the church and get some additional images and do a full Visual Ohio feature on it. Not sure exactly when that will be.
