Chicago's Iconic Houses of Worship

Chicago is an "architectural town" -- known the world over for its
beautiful buildings and breathtaking skyline. Many of the most
notable are the City's churches and other houses of worship built
for communities established both before, and in the aftermath of,
the Chicago Fire in 1871.

These buildings not only are aesthetically pleasing, but they also
serve as a connection to the diverse immigrant past of Chicago.
Ranging from resolutely mainstream to the ethnically-rooted and
the avant-garde, the houses of worship included in this Tour
reflect the unique diversity of Chicago's highly creative
architecture, as well as the spiritual diversity of the people who
have made their homes in this vibrant City.

This custom-designed Tour includes houses of worship that reflect
innovations in church architecture, along with designs by noted
architects such as Daniel Burnham, Louis Sullivan, Frank Lloyd
Wright, and designer Louis Comfort Tiffany.

The historic districts included in this Tour will also focus upon
Chicago's historic houses of worship within the context of the
surrounding vibrant, ethnic neighborhoods which many of them
have anchored for over 100 years.
This is one of our
Americana Heritage Tours
by Snobby Tours®,Inc.,
tours focusing on people, places and events
which have enriched America's culture, history and
national pride.
