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

  • Gorton Community Center 400 East Illinois Road Lake Forest, IL, 60045 United States (map)

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 to First Presbyterian Church of Lake Forest, Lake Forest College, and Lake Forest architect Howard Van Doren Shaw 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.
