October 5 - The Curious Christians are planning for another Chicago outing! We will visit the Glessner House, stroll along Prairie Avenue with our guide, and view the Tiffany stained glass windows of Second Presbyterian Church which is located on South Michigan Avenue.
The Chicago Tribune named Glessner House one of the top twenty architectural gems in Chicago. Built in the 1880’s, the 17,000 square foot residence was a radical departure from the fussy Victorian taste of the time. It is located on Prairie Avenue, once home to Marshall Field, George Pullman, and other business and social leaders of the 19th century.
