Louis Sullivan, 1903


Holy Trinity is one of just two churches designed by Louis Sullivan. It is the oldest Orthodox parish in Chicago, founded in 1892, and the Cathedral for the Orthodox Church in America: Diocese of the Midwest. Holy Trinity was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1976 and named a Chicago Landmark in 1979. The church retains features typical of Slavic provincial architecture, including an octagonal dome and a frontal bell tower. Sullivan's decorative design elements can be viewed from the exterior and interior. Recently, both the church and rectory have undergone renovation, including rebuilding of the rectory's balcony and restoration of Sullivan's stained glass windows, ornamental chandelier and interior dome.
