ST. JAMES EPISCOPAL CHURCH, PARISH HOUSE AND CEMETERY

84-07 Broadway
1848-1975, current building 1976

The new St. James Episcopal Church located in 84-07 Broadway was originally a three- story wood-frame structure with windows made in Germany. It served the community from 1848 until 1975, when it was destroyed by arson. Parishioners were only able to salvage some vestments, altar linens, and brass ornaments from the rubble, but despite the considerable losses, they were able to rebuild the following year.

This site also harbors a cemetery, where some of the original settlers of Elmhurst are buried.
