The Peachtree Christian Church is located at 1580 Peachtree Street NW, Atlanta, GA 30309.
The Church was founded in 1925 and dedicated in 1928. The building exemplifies the strong Gothic Revival preferences of its era. Reverend Bricker, the church’s first minister, toured England and Scotland, choosing Scotland’s Melrose Abbey, a celebrated creation of the 15th century, made more fascinating in its ruined state. The center of the Church’s facade is modeled after an elevation of the Abbey.
The sanctuary’s stained glass windows are often claimed to constitute the largest single collection of English stained glass windows outside of England. More important than any quantitative valuation is the fact that so much of it was produced by one studio in a coherent program. Virginia Raguin, a director of The Census of Stained Glass in America, has stated that the Church has “a unity of style and subject matter in its glass that many larger places (including most European cathedrals) do not have.”
