One of very few buildings to survive the “Great Chicago Fire,” Old St. Patrick’s Church is still to this day a fully functioning church! The church in addition to being protected now by the Chicago Historical Society is also registered with the United States Historical Society as one of the oldest buildings in the city of Chicago!
