2nd Presbyterian Church

Located in the Central West End, 2nd Presbyterian was designed in 1900 by Theodore Link, in the same Romanesque style he used when designing St. Louis's Union Station. A chapel portion was designed by Shepley Rutland and Coolidge, the successor firm to H.H. Richardson; Link's follow-up design for the sanctuary bears relation to Richardson's famed Trinity Church in Boston in both plan and styling. The interior has been remodeled several times and today is a fairly simple, unadorned space. Stained glass windows by Tiffany remains in place.

The adjacent school wing went up in 1931. The complex still serves its original congregation.
