Throughout the history of Toledo, Ohio, its churches have stood as beacons of faith, architectural excellence. In addition, Toledo is home to some of the largest collections of late Victorian houses left standing in the United States.
There are monuments to a diversity of faiths -- Baptists, Catholics, Lutherans, and Episcopalians. Today, keeping with its ever-evolving population, the city also boasts a number of exquisitely designed mosques, synagogues, and temples.
Visitors and architecture aficionados will love the Old West End, the heart of our beautiful religious landscape. The houses of worship in this area represent a stunning variety of construction styles: Victorian, Edwardian, Georgian, and Byzantine, to name a few. Faith has played such a vital role in the area’s history that people speculate the phrase “Holy Toledo!” was inspired by the heavy concentration of churches and cathedrals on Collingwood Boulevard.
