Restoring Chicago's Arts & Crafts Jewel - Historic Second Presbyterian Church

Sunday, March 17, 2019
3:00 Gorton Community Center

Historic Second Presbyterian Church in Chicago’s South Loop played an important role in Lake Forest’s early development and ever since has shared strong connections to the city’s institutions and residents, including the First Presbyterian Church of Lake Forest, Lake Forest College, and Lake Forest architect Howard Van Doren Shaw himself, who designed Second Presbyterian’s landmarked 1901 Arts & Crafts interior.

Glessner House Executive Director and Curator Bill Tyre and architect Nate Lielasus will discuss the history of Chicago’s Second Presbyterian Church, its ties to Lake Forest, and recent efforts to restore this National Historic Landmark.
