Emmanuel Church

-A A +A
1903, Cram and Ferguson. 415 Spring St. (at Dearborn St.)

Emmanuel Church, with heavy, random-coursed, buff-colored stone walls, dominates this neighborhood of small wood-frame residences as its bulk presses close to Spring Street. The main block of the nave, with side aisles and side entrance, is surrounded by buttressed walls and stout tower engaged at one corner. This arrangement, in concert with the rather restrained Gothic Revival detailing of window tracery and crockets, harkens to English antecedents, obviously deemed appropriate for this Episcopal congregation, originally gathered in the mid-nineteenth century.
