ABOUT OUR SPACE
Due to COVID-19, our space is not open to the general public and we are not leasing or renting it out.
The Warehouse currently occupies an historic church located in the Over the Rhine neighborhood of Cincinnati, Ohio. The former Nast Trinity United Methodist Church, designed by leading Cincinnati architect, Samuel Hannaford, was completed in 1880. It was the home of the first German Methodist church to be established anywhere in the world, and was declared an historic site in the late twentieth century. It’s leader, William Nast, was born in 1807 in Stuttgart, Germany. He immigrated to the United States a age 21, joined the Methodist Church at 28, and was ordained as clergy. He began to organize German immigrants throughout the United States and they acquired the property at 1310 Race Street. The building is currently owned by the West Ohio Conference of the UMC and is being stewarded by Hyde Park Community UMC, partnering with The Warehouse.
HISTORY IN OUR OWN BACKYARD
Built in 1880 the Nast Trinity Church in downtown Cincinnati, Ohio was designed by Samuel Hannaford who also designed many of the most beautiful buildings in the city.
The original congregation began as the “First German Methodist Episcopal Church” then in 1880 it transitioned into the “Nast Methodist Church”. In 1958 it became “Nast Trinity Methodist Church”. Today it is known as “The Warehouse Church”.
If you’ve been to Washington Park or Music Hall, you’ve noticed this gorgeous church across the street. This video reveals the story behind the building and what its future holds for the community.
The Warehouse Church is across the street from Cincinnati’s foremost downtown park, Washington Park, which holds numerous community events in the Spring and Summer.
It is also situated in Cincinnati’s Arts District: Music and Memorial Halls (home of the Cincinnati Symphony, Pops Orchestra and the May Festival Chorus), Cincinnati Shakespeare Theater, and the School for the Creative and Performing Arts within one block of the church.
We began renovation in December, 2019 prior to a scheduled Launch in April, 2020, which was delayed by the coronavirus pandemic. The renovation gallery is below and is still in progress. Our vision is offer events and space rental once it is completed.
