Prairie District Venue
Second Presbyterian Church is a Chicago architectural gem dating to 1874. Architect James Renwick designed the Gothic Revival exterior and Howard Van Doren Shaw and Frederic Clay Bartlett redesigned the interior in the Arts and Crafts style in 1901. Stunning memorial windows made by William Morris & Company, Tiffany Glass and Decorating Company, Tiffany Studios, McCully & Miles, and Louis J. Millet enhance the Church's interior. Original Bartlett murals, light fixtures and 175 angels grace the space. In 2013, Second Presbyterian Church was designated a National Historic Landmark in recognition of its Arts and Crafts interior. This designation is reserved for buildings and sites that are determined by the Secretary of the Interior to possess national significance in American culture and history.
Architectural Tours: Friends of Historic Second Church offers weekly tours during the market of this architectural treasure to preserve, restore, and educate the public.
