I haven't been able to find the architect of the church but plans were approved in April of 1888 and when completed it stood 145' long by 51' wide with a single tower that reached 135' in the air.
The school, built in 1907, closed in 1976 and merged with Holy Family parish in East Price Hill. When Our Lady of Perpetual Help parish closed, the remaining families joined Holy Family as well. Our Lady of Perpetual Help Church was stripped of its sacred items and the building was sold. The original church bells and organ were installed at Holy Family as were the icons, originally given to Our Lady in 1887 by Pope Leo XIII.
Holy Family Church is quite beautiful in its own right. The Baroque Revival church was completed in 1915 and was designed by local architect John P. Sheblessy.
Our Lady of Perpetual Help was up for "Crown Jewel" consideration but I've decided against it. She is looking a little more worn up close and is in real need of ongoing maintenance but I have always loved her location.
