This church, constructed when the surrounding community of Ravenswood was still an independent suburb, is a rare local example of the Stick Style, a picturesque architectural style used primarily for suburban residences in the Eastern United States in the 1860s. It remained popular in the Midwest through the 1880s.
The rectory, which was built in 1905, was designed in a simplified Tudor style; the church entry was added at the same time.
