German United Brethren Church

4652 Cincinnati Brookville Road Shandon OH 45013
Location: Okeana/Shandon

This building, located on now private residence, was erected in 1886 on land donated by John B. and Emily Hauser Walther. United Brethren services had been held at Hickory Chapel, then at the Fairview Church and in the Old Welsh Church (Community House). The German language was spoken in the church through its entire existence. Due to the younger members preferring services in English and the anti-Germanic sentiments during World War I, the church disbanded and was sold on May 7, 1921.
