Old Saint Mary Church

Local nameOld Saint Mary Church
LocationMilwaukee, USA

Old St. Mary's Church in Milwaukee, Wisconsin was built during 1846-1847 by the Old St. Mary Parish. The parish was founded a year earlier, by German Catholic immigrants. Milwaukee, having been incorporated only the year before, was still a young city at that time, and Wisconsin had not yet become a state. Old St. Mary's is the oldest church still standing in the city.

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.The church was designed by Victor Schulte, a Prussian immigrant, who designed three other religious buildings in the area. It is constructed of Cream City brick. Its tower gained a clock in 1860 and three bells in 1868. These bronze bells were cast in Munich. Mass was held on the main level, and a school was housed on the lower level until 1867. The carved wooden main altar was purchased in 1848.
