Curious Christian Events

October 5 - Glessner House

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.

  • Date: Saturday, October 5, 2019
  • Departure from Knox: 8:30 am, return 4:00 pm
  • Lunch: Kroll’s South Loop (burgers, salads, sandwiches)
  • sign up HERE

Price: $42. This includes guided tours of Glessner, Prairie Avenue, and Second Presbyterian, and transportation by van from Knox.  It does not include the cost of lunch.

NOTE: Glessner House is not handicapped accessible.  There are 15 stairs to enter and a stairway to the second floor.  We will also walk along Prairie Avenue. Kroll’s Restaurant and Second Pres are within a block or two.
