St. Luke's Episcopal Church

-A A +A
1955, Henry Steinbomer. 11 St. Luke's Ln.

Sited on a ridge above the Olmos Basin, this church's extremely attenuated bell tower and spire soar so high they are visible from the McAllister Freeway (U.S. 281). Nestled among a complex of buildings in Alamo Heights, the church was designed in a contemporary version of Gothic Revival. The interior of the building contains multi-paneled areas filled with stained glass designed by Cecil Casebier.
