Fourth Sneak Peek!
Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist
Nestled right at the entrance of the Crestwood neighborhood is the stunning Russian Orthodox Cathedral of St. John the Baptist, built in 1958. The church consists of approximately 400 members, including some of the original founders who helped establish the parish in 1949. Everything about the church edifice speaks of a rich Russian ecclesiastical heritage. The building is executed in the 17th-century Muscovite-Yaroslav-style.
Gilded onion domes, each crowned with a traditional Russian three-barred cross, a belfry, and icons of scenes from the life of St. John the Baptist above the three doors adorn the exterior. Murals and numerous centuries-old icons and an imposing four-tiered iconostasis make up the interior.
This is a true neighborhood jewel that folks will not want to miss!
