Historic Profile: The Stewart Memorial Church is one of the few Minneapolis churches to be executed in the Prairie Style, a radical departure from established concepts in ecclesiastical design. Architects William Purcell and George Feick created a building reminiscent of Frank Lloyd Wright’s innovative design for United Temple in Oak Park, Illinois (1906). The original design integrity has been maintained even through the addition of the organ and the construction of the Sunday School wing. An effort to rehabilitate the windows, doors, exterior walls, porches, and other decorative features was undertaken in 1999.
