Methodist Episcopal Church, Libertyville, IL

September 15, 2017

As a kid we drove through Libertyville a few times, always on the way to Wisconsin. I recall it as a relatively new town with little that could be considered “historic” architecture. My virtual visit tonight confirms that recollection: if this building had been built there, it is long gone.

The corner tower (which is not an entry), book-matched gables and entries, all beneath a great hovering pyramidal roof makes me wonder what is hiding around that corner.

They really don’t you to get in, do they.

  1. They got a new organ in 1913, which suggests the building dates from about the same time.
