This wonderful, intimate example of a Gothic Revival church, home of the first Episcopal congregation west of the Mississippi, was designed by prominent New York architect Leopold Eidlitz and dedicated in 1867.
The main building of the church is constructed of Illinois sandstone. Funds for the tower and porch were not available until later. The belfry tower, with its gargoyles, was built of Indiana limestone and completed in 1912. The bells are duplicates of ones featured in the German pavilion in the 1904 World’s Fair. concerts, plays and other events.
First Presbyterian Church Kirkwood
Located in the heart of Kirkwood, Missouri, on the same corner of East Adams and North Kirkwood Road (Lindbergh) that the original church was built on more than a century and a half ago, the First Presbyterian Church of Kirkwood carries on it’s long tradition of worship, learning, fellowship and service.
Back then, in 1856, Kirkwood Road was called Webster Avenue and the original small brick church was surrounded by a grove of oak trees with a white picket fence between it and the street.
Today, First Presbyterian Church is a vibrant and growing church, with an enthusiastic, worshipful, and welcoming congregation. The church building itself has also grown with a two-story stone education building attached to the east side of the existing church that was added in the 1920s and newer additions recently made to accommodate exciting new programs.
Most importantly as a venue for the St. Louis Women’s Chorale, the church’s beautiful interior offers a perfect concert space with very good acoustics along with an intimate, friendly feel despite its large and impressive design.
Link Auction Galleries was formed in January, 2014 by a team of specialists with a combined total of over 160 years of experience in the St. Louis auction industry. Our company takes its name from Theodore Link, the German/American architect who designed our historical building at 5000 Washington Place in St. Louis' vibrant Central West End. Our group aims to preserve the institution of a full-scale auction house that St. Louis has been fortunate to maintain since 1830, starting with Ben J. Selkirk and Sons. At the same time, we are preserving a 1902 Greek Revival style landmark that was the first building listed on the national historic registry.
