Itself initially run from a riverboat, CUB moored itself in 1871 to a block bounded by Front, Sycamore and Broadway, currently part of the site of Great American Ballpark. With the growth of manufacturing operations along Third Street, CUB shifted its mission to minister to single women and children working in the factories. A new five-story building at Third and Lytle, the Anna Louise Inn, was opened Memorial Day 1909 and remains in operation. View on Ohio Memory.
