Interior detail of roof truss Originally built as St. Bartholomew Episcopal Church, this Joliet-limestone church building is the work of the acclaimed Chicago architectural firm of Holabird & Roche and is a rare example of their religious building work. Its construction in 1892 came 3 years after the Englewood community became part of the City of Chicago, and exemplifies its early development as a finely-built, suburban-like neighborhood. The interior retains its visually-distinctive wooden roof trusses.
