Facts

  • The design of the Saint Louis Roman Catholic Church was derived from fourteenth-century French Gothic, with German Gothic overtones.
  • Its most outstanding feature is an octagonal Medina sandstone steeple, including a Seth Thomas clock and a 72-foot-tall pierced spire. The open-work spire is the tallest ever built completely of stone without reinforcement. Reminiscent of the spires of Cologne Cathedral in architect Schikel's native Germany, it is reputed to be the only remaining pierced spire in the U.S.
  • The cruciform plan includes nave, sanctuary and transepts. The 200-foot-long nave is divided by polished granite columns with richly carved stone capitals.
