James Renwick, Architect, 1874

— Rebuilt in 1900 by Howard Van Doren Shaw —

When this neo-Gothic church was designed by a prominent New York architect, the surrounding streets, including Prairie Avenue one block east, were lined with the homes of wealthy Chicagoans. The fine interior decorations recall the congregation that built and, after a fire, rebuilt the church.
