St. Patrick’s Roman Catholic Church in Chicago (1854, spires added 1885). St. Patrick’s Church is one of only a few buildings in Chicago that pre-date the Great Chicago Fire, constructed outside the boundaries of the conflagration. The original congregation first met in 1846, primarily serving the Irish immigrant population, and this church was built in 1854. The differing spires on the church represent the unity of the Eastern and Western church.
