ST. LOUIS (KSDK) - Renovations are currently underway at the Old Cathedral.
The church was built in 1831, while it's the oldest church in the City of St. Louis, it's not the oldest in the area.
Here are the five oldest church buildings* still standing in the St. Louis metropolitan area, according to the Missouri History Museum:
