Christ Episcopal Church in Waukegan, Illinois the morning after an overnight snow.
The present church, built in 1888, is Richardsonian Romanesque architecture with Gothic features - pointed arches over the doorways, large front window and openings in the bell tower. The bell tower rises 120 feet and houses one eighteen-hundred pound bell cast in Troy, New York. The church was designed by the Chicago architectural firm of Edbrook and Burnham. It was completed at a total cost of $33,741.67 through special gifts and memorials. Beautiful stained glass memorial windows adorn each side of the church. The large front window, known as the baptismal window, depicts Christ and the children. The pews are oak with cherry trim. The church's exterior is Carbondale brownstone. Bishop William G. McLaren consecrated the structure on January 31, 1889.
