Immanuel Presbyterian Church

1100 North Astor Street

Architects: Edward Townsend Mix 1873

The Victorian Gothic church, designed by the Milwaukee architect Edward Townsend Mix, has a combination of different building stones. The cream-gray Wauwatosa Limestone was used for the walls. Alternating red and gray sandstones were used for trim on the arched openings. Polished red granite columns at the entrance and the blue-gray slate roof completed the polychromy of the building.

Mix used sandstone frequently in his designs. In 1869, he used Lake Superior Sandstone in the design of the former Milwaukee County and City Courthouse.
