Mariemont Community Church

The Mariemont Community Church is a non-denominational church serving the entire community.  With its stone slate roof coming from a 12th century English tithe barn and its altar cross coming from an original beam of St. Peter’s Cathedral in Rome, technically the Mariemont Community Church is the oldest church in America.  It was also the first building to be constructed in Mariemont.  Designed by architect Louis E. Jallade, it is designed in the shape of a cross in the style of a pre-Norman Conquest English Anglo-Saxon parish church.
