Worthmann & Steinbach was a Chicago-based architectural firm that was active from 1903 through 1928. It was a partnership between Henry W. Worthmann (1857–1946) and John G. Steinbach (b. 1878)[1]

The firm is best remembered for its design of large and elaborate churches in the Chicago area which were built for Roman Catholic, Eastern Catholic, and Lutheran clients.[2] Worthmann and Steinbach were also active outside of Chicago and eventually built for clients in Indiana, Michigan and Wisconsin.
