Kevin, at Building Cincinnati, reports today that the City is considering an ordinance to transfer this church, among other properties to 3CDC. Over the past few months parts of the tower have been falling off. Will 3CDC save the oldest standing Protestant church in the city? It had roof repairs ten years ago to stave off demolition, but has sat crumbling since.
UPDATE: Some additional photos:
Here is a historic postcard type photo that I got from some parishioners at St Peter and Paul Church (at Ferguson and Queen City, Westwood). St Peter and St Paul church apparently merged and moved to Westwood in 1948. St Peter, which was near Rothenberg has long since been demolished.
The Parsonage, 1417 Race, which was demolished by the City in 2006, after the rear wall collapsed:
And from the Cincinnati Public Library Memory Project comes this photo of St Peters:
