1897 St. Luke's Chapel

1897 St. Luke's ChapelSt. Luke's Chapel needs a new lease on life, or a new home. Attributed to Hebbard & Gill, this Mission Revival gem from 1897 is the oldest non-residential building in North Park. Its owner, the Episcopal Diocese, will give it away free of charge and contribute whatever it would cost the church to demolish it toward moving expenses. All Saints Episcopal Church members moved the chapel here from Hillcrest in 1924, as the congregation grew. However, today's preservation best practices call for reopening the chapel where it stands, part of the St. Luke's Church complex, which dates from the 1950s. The Diocese, not St. Luke's, is responsible for the chapel and may be considering razing it along with a few other old buildings on this property for, guess what? A parking lot. SOHO urges the Episcopal Diocese to restore this unique chapel and make it a vital part of any new building plans.
