Additional Information:
The brick Holy Trinity Roman Catholic Church was built in 1849 and had a tower and steeple added in 1862. [A]. V. Schulte designed the church structure and Schmidtner designed the steeple. Interior alterations occurred in 1863, 1874 and 1890.
During the late 1840s, Father Saltzmann, young assistant pastor of St. Mary's Church on Broadway, saw the need for a church closer to German-speaking Roman Catholics living on Milwaukee's south side. He collected funds for this purpose, purchased lots from George Walker and retained the services of the German-born architect, carpenter and builder who had designed St. Mary's and St. John's Cathedral. Lumber, brick and considerable labor were contributed by parishoners. Church was dedicated on 9/24/1850.
It is also a contributing resource in the Walker's Point Historic District (listed: 12/19/78).

The church is located in Milwaukee, Wisconsin.
