Overview

Parts of St. James Cathedral date back to before the Great Chicago Fire of 1871. Most of the church, however, was gutted in the blaze, but the walls and the bell tower date back to its 1857 incarnation. Besides being the oldest Episcopal church in the city, the church is also noted for a very famous visitor. In 1860, Abraham Lincoln visited the church the day after he was elected President. Most services are held in the Chapel of St. Andrews, which is where the brotherhood of St. Andrew was founded in 1883.
