Old St. Mary's Steeple


The steeple of Old St. Mary's through the rooftop garden of the Emery Center.

Old St. Mary's clock tower dates from 1842 and is the oldest in Cincinnati. The clock face is original however the internal working were modified when it was electrified. The bells are original and date from 1843.

That bell tower was the deciding factor in my choice of living space. I love listening to the bells (however off-tune they are) and love seeing the dark clouds roll over the steeple during storms.
