St. Paulus Kirche is the oldest Protestant church in the city of Cincinnati. It stands at the corner of Race and 15th streets in Over-the-Rhine. 3CDC has partnered with the city to stabilize and save the historic church.

Thanks to photographer and OTR resident James Jenkins for sharing his photos:
