  • This was one of many lovely churches that I visited during my visit to Chicago. There are some beautiful stained glass windows.  more »
  • Individual tours. Our guide was so friendly and knowledgeable. Gothic outside, arts and craftsman inside. Tiffany stained glass. Lots of history. The docent was second to none. Don’t miss this.  more »

  • 2016-Second Presbyterian hosted the South Loop Farmers Market for 16 weeks this summer from July through September on Thursdays from 4pm-8pm with tours of the beautiful church interior each week. Since September, weekly Saturday tours have been extended from 11am-3pm, and Sunday tours are at 12:15pm after services - meet just inside the entry vestibule. It is a must see Chicago gem with a Landmarked interior complete with Tiffany stained glass windows.
  • The Second Presbyterian Church is one of the prettiest churches I've been in with the most beautiful stained glass windows I've seen outside of European cathedrals. Each window is beautifully crafted and many have their own stories from this church's troubled past (the church burnt down and was rebuilt 2-3 times). Admission is free and so is the tour, though donations are encouraged since this place is in dire need of restoration. So if you are in the area for any reason, stop in. The docent who showed me around was amazing and nice and knew all about the history of the windows. I highly recommend it for anyone who wanted to see a hidden treasure in Chicago and is on a budget.
