Fourth Presbyterian Church
Fourth Presbyterian Church has been a Chicago landmark since its construction in 1914. In 1975, it was declared a national one. Architect Ralph Adams Cram designed this gorgeous church in the Gothic Revival style. If you are strolling down Michigan Avenue, stop and admire this striking building of Bedford limestone and rich ornamentation. The church is located across the street from the bustling Hancock Center. Its restored courtyard is a quiet sanctuary from the stresses of city life. This landmark is also an active parish serving thousands of people, from all strata of society and all walks of life.

As a lover of wonderful big churches, this one caught my eye when I exited the Hancock Building across MIchigan Ave. I went in and to my surprise, landed on a noonday concert (Fridays). The 6000+ pipe organ was played by a Master and started off with Bach's famous Tocata and Fugue! The concert was an hour. You're handed a program as you enter. Plenty of seating, no crowds. Check it out! It's top shelf music for free (or a donation to the church.)
