Calvary Episcopal Church Attraction Details
Calvary Episcopal Church
http://www.calvarypgh.org
Organized in January 1855, Calvary Episcopal Church began parish life as a frontier church in Pittsburgh, then the gateway city to the American frontier. Located in the city's rural but developing East End section, Calvary first rented space in a German Lutheran Church and then, in 1861, built its own building. In 1904, the Vestry acquired property at Shady Avenue and Walnut Street, commissioned Dr. Ralph Adams Cram of Boston to design a new structure, and built one of the most extraordinary Gothic Revival churches in the United States.
