Following a brief Annual Meeting conducted by APT WGLC, Edward Torrez of Bauer Latoza Studio will provide a presentation on the recent restoration of All Saints Episcopal Church.
All Saints Episcopal Church, built in 1884, is likely the oldest wood-frame church in Chicago. In the 1980s, the future of the church was uncertain due to a decreasing congregation; however, new leadership followed by congregation growth and activism provided fundraising needed to restore the church. The project included foundation replacement, stabilization of the original bell tower, restoration of the stained glass windows, and revealing and restoring the original wood siding. Earlier this year the restoration of All Saints Episcopal Church received a Landmarks Illinois Richard H. Driehaus Preservation Award and recently, a Preservation Excellence Award from the Chicago Commission on Landmarks.
The event is free and open to all. Street parking is available and the church is located near the Metra UP-N Ravenswood station, and Brown Line Damen station.
