First English Lutheran Church



Across from Washington Park is the First English Lutheran Church.  The church was organized in 1842 by German-Americans who wanted to have a church where their children could learn English since most of the churches held services in German.  The church was built in 1894 and designed by architects Crapsey and Brown.  The building contains many Gothic features such as the large arched window while the 130-foot tower is of a Romanesque style.
