*Premier Tour: Evanston has been called the “City of Churches.” This walking tour near the city center features the exteriors of nine churches in the space of 10 blocks. Styles include Gothic, Romanesque, New England Meeting House, and Classical Revival.

1.5 Hours
Merrick Rose Garden, southwest corner of Oak Ave. and Lake St., 1426 Oak Ave. Evanston

A walking tour near downtown “Heavenston” explores the growth of several denominations, which began with the city’s Methodist founders, as well as the stories of individual structures, their designers, and the people they served.

Patterns of immigration and Evanston's racial diversity are also important factors in the city's ecclesiastical history and will be discussed. It is remarkable to find so many outstanding examples of ecclesiastical architecture in such proximity.
