About this Exploration:



St.John's Church BeloitSt. John's Catholic church is an impressive post rock church trimmed with Indiana limestone. Construction of the foundation began in 1900. The project was completed in 1904.
 
The church is a wonderful example of the native limestone buildings that can be found throughout our community and north central Kansas.  Furthermore, this double-tower church supposedly is the first church in the U.S. built with flying buttresses and a ceiling made entirely of stone. 

Its architecture is a combination of Romanesque and Gothic, and its 29 stained-glass windows are masterful.
 
Group tours of the church can be arranged with advanced notice. Contact the Chamber of Commerce at 785.738.2717.
