Former Emmaus German Evangelisch Church

I’m afraid this little church’s days may be numbered at the northeast corner of Tower Grove and Chouteau avenues, as there will be a new development going on this block that will encompass this property. The former Emmaus German Evangelisch Church was founded in 1896, and this building apparently opened the next year. It closed in 1976 as the area declined. I always admired this little guy, and thought it would make a perfect life/work space for an architect and their family, or some other use. It’s a big piece of land that has probably never been subdivided. It will be gone soon, apparently.

  1. In 1929, the Evangelical congregation reported having a bell. After that congregation closed, this became Emmaus Baptist Church.
