History[edit]

St. Paul's Lutheran Church - Ashland, KY. Taken 2010.

St. Paul's Lutheran Church began in 1866[1] by German immigrants. Its original location was on the corner of 14th Street and Winchester Avenue, and Rev. Gustav Baum served as the initial pastor through 1871. Church services were in German originally.[2] The churches records from 1866 to 1892 were in German, and have been translated into English.[3]

A group of German immigrants who had been worshipping together took an offer of the Kentucky Iron, Coal, and Manufacturing Company to obtain a lot to built their church.[4]

The church was relocated in 1951 to its current location on Bath Avenue. St. Paul's celebrated their 150th Anniversary in 2016.[4]
