CASA Crestwood Home Tour - Sneak Peek #3: A Cathedral in our Midst

Sneak Peek #3!

A Cathedral in our Midst

“Mom, it’s a castle church!” said the young boy as they drove up to Grace Lutheran Church for the first time. Many of us say the same in Crestwood as we gaze at the gorgeous facade of Grace church.  Even on faith row - otherwise known as 16th Street  - Grace church stands out as a splendid example of neo-Gothic design. Grace Lutheran was placed on the vaunted National Register of Historic Places in 2013. The windows fascinate the eye - there are even two giraffes! Can you find them?

The building was designed by Rochester, NY native John William Corbusier who incorporated skillful massing and organic use of ornament, hallmarks of his style. The congregation was established in 1876 by those who wanted to worship in English rather than the founding language of German. Grace Church was built to be the “Lutheran Cathedral” in Washington, DC. They now welcome members from around the world with even a congregation of Ethiopians who worship in Oromo.

The 2018 CASA Crestwood Tour of Homes starts here with a not-to-be-missed organ serenade at 2 pm, Oct 28th!
