Lake View Presbyterian Church
716 W. Addison St.
1888, Burnham & Root
2005, Restoration, Holabird & Root
This simple Shingle Style structure—now gloriously restored—has a high pitched roof and octagonal tower with conical steeple. Built shortly before the annexation of Lake View, it features the wood frame construction that had been prohibited in Chicago after the Fire. In the 1890s the church was enlarged, shifting the axis to north–south.
