Lake Street Church
For November and December we will be viewing Chicago area sites beginning with a church, The Lake Street Church (formerly First Baptist Church) is located in central Evanston IL. It opened in 1875 and continues to be Evanston's oldest public building. The church has all original woodwork, windows, and pews. The pulpit contains wood from the 1814 White House roof. It is shown here in a 1909 postcard.
