About this Exploration:
St. 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.
