Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church

Saints Peter and Paul Catholic Church was constructed in 1874. The spire, the tallest in the Soulard area, was added 15 years later. The black buttresses and quoins are simply painted that way and have been so for many years. The parish originally served a German congregation; today it draws congregants from all over St. Louis. A tasteful 1984 remodelling reconfigured the church's seating into a circular arrangement centered at the crossing; the remainder of the sanctuary is an open, airy, and attractive space with few intrusions.
