Regarding St. John the Baptist Catholic Church. From the National Register of Historic Places inventory-nomination form:
St. John the Baptist Church, constructed in 1858 is one of few early ethnic churches extant in Kenton County. Of those which remain, it is the best example of early German utilitarian structures. Devoid of the high ornamentation which was present in later church structures, St. Johns symbolizes the non-materialistic religious life led by early German immigrants.
