St. Anthony's Church
256 N. Ohio

Construction on the two-story brick St. Anthony's church began in 1902, on the site of the old wooden frontier church, St. Boniface. Work was completed on the church in 1905. Called the "German Church," it is considered the oldest Catholic church in Wichita.

This late Victorian styled structure makes use of rounded or Roman arches, and carries on the heritage of the German Romanesque design peculiar to Northern Europe. The stained glass windows, with inscriptions, most in German, were designed in Germany, shipped in pieces and assembled in Wichita.

The eclectic wooden steeple/tower centered on the front has a distinctive Moorish character. The church bell tower served as a landmark for early pilots who flew over Wichita. The interior of the church remains in a near original state.
