Established 1867; still open in 2016

Between 1867 and 1869, the early members of this congregation met in a Masonic Hall at 10th and Carr Streets in downtown St. Louis City. Their first building was completed in 1869 at Elliott and Wash Streets (now Cole). The construction was especially significant because this church would house the first English speaking Lutheran congregation in St. Louis.

In 1882, a larger church was constructed at Cardinal and Bell Streets. In 1921, the church moved into its present building on Clayton Road. For a more comprehensive history of St. Mark’s, be sure to visit the church’s website.
