Fourth Presbyterian Church

Fourth Presbyterian Church Review

A welcome visual and physical oasis amid the high-rise hubbub of North Michigan Avenue, this Gothic Revival house of worship was the first big building erected on the avenue after the Chicago fire. Designed by Ralph Adams Cram, the church drew many of its congregants from the city's elite. Local architect Howard van Doren Shaw devised the cloister and companion buildings. In July and August, concerts are given every Friday at 12:10 by the fountain in the courtyard off Michigan Avenue; concerts are performed in the sanctuary from Sepember through June.
