Established in 1895, St. John’s Episcopal Church in Elkhart, Indiana, has been a classic example of Gothic architecture for over one hundred years. The church’s floor plan is in the shape of a cross. Its many features include; a square bell tower, beautiful stained glass windows illustrating parables, a Victorian brass filigree pulpit, a bracketed vaulted ceiling with suspended finial acorns and carved grape clusters. A focal point is the beautifully paneled and carved altar which is framed by reredos.
Be sure to look behind the reredos to discover the magnificent world class Casavant pipe organ. A work of art itself, St. John’s houses many fine examples of superior wood craft as well as twentieth century art.
Special for groups, have a potluck lunch catered by the Welcoming Committee of the church for some homemade yummy treats before or after your tour.
