St. Peter's Episcopal Church


St. Peter's Episcopal Church is located at 402 South Lincoln Street (on the corner of South Lincoln and West Cook Street).

The church building, of English Country style, was completed in 1932 after nearly 20 years of fund raising done by the Women's Guild. Originally, there were only four stained glass windows. The rest were plain leaded glass. Through the years, various parishioners donated all the windows and the donor decided the theme. The south side of the church tells the story of Jesus' life from Annunciation through Ascension. The north side is mixed with pictures of Saints and scenes with Jesus. Two of the original windows, one of George Washington at Valley Forge and the other of Jesus with the children, are now located at the end rows of pews but once overlooked the baptismal font.
