Church of the Nativity


The Church of the Nativity, completed in 1849, is one of the oldest churches in this Ohio River town. Nativity has a rich history and a heritage which it shares with Maysville. Located in an eight block long, three block wide Historic District (listed on the National Register of Historic Places), the church, is of Tudor Gothic design which contributes to the variety of styles found in the Historic District, ranging from Georgian to Greek Revival to Victorian. The brick and stone church, designed by the first Bishop of the Diocese of Kentucky, The Rt. Rev. B. B. Smith, remains essentially unchanged on its exterior, except for a large stained glass window added in 1891.
