Update: I went back and revisited the church in July of 2020.
St. Agatha’s Parish is a great example of how a Roman Catholic church in St. Louis didn’t just serve the community for a couple of hours on Sunday morning. It was a campus, buzzing with activity all week long.
The church itself is a great example of French and German Gothic in its ornamentation and massing.
Sanborn maps help us discover the original purposes for the buildings on the campus; below is the priests’ residence.
While this simple but elegant building housed nuns.
The high styling school building and parish hall shows the Beaux-arts style; another parochial school was on the southwest corner of the property and was presumably destroyed for I-55, if not earlier.
