This is an archived listing.


1630 N. Clark St.


Lincoln Park / Old Town


Fugard & Knapp, 1925



The Moody Church is one of the grandest Romanesque Revival churches in the United States. It borrows elements from Byzantine architecture. The 3,700-seat sanctuary is the largest column-free auditorium in Chicago. The building features a 68-foot-high false ceiling and nearly perfect acoustics. Its 36 unique stained-glass windows and sprawling dimensions make it a Chicago icon. A rooftop deck with panoramic views of the Lincoln Park lakefront provides space for large events. The church is named after famed evangelist Dwight L. Moody.
