By 1850 there were 115,000 people living in Cincinnati, many of which were German speaking Catholics living in Over The Rhine. In 1843 Father Joseph Ferneding was asked to begin planning a church to be built to be named St. Paul in Over The Rhine. Work on the church was completed in January 1850. Father Ferneding was Pastor at St. Paul until 1866.
The architectural type of the Church is Romanesque with vaulted ceilings & golden pineapples which are a "sign of friendship & hospitality". The altar is supported by 12 corinthian columns.
The first two stained glass windows were done by F.X. Zettler, a German glass artist. The first was installed in the 1900's to commemorate the 50th wedding anniversary of parishioners, the Hemmelgarns. This window won first prize at the Chicago World's Fair in 1893. The second window by Zettler was installed a few years later in memory of a Priest of the church at that time. The remaining stained glass windows were installed in 1925 for the churches 75th anniversary.
By 1970, with people moving from the city to the suburbs, the congregation had dwindled to only 70 members. The Diocese decided to deconsecrate the building & closed the doors to St. Paul's. That same year the building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
