The existing structure was built in 1949 in a residential neighborhood in Indianapolis, Indiana.  The recently completed project created a larger worship space and added parish facilities and classrooms, as well as a cloister and courtyard.  The worship space was expanded, not only to accommodate church growth, but also to create a suitable home for the custom made pipe organ that is currently being crafted for the church.  A new bell tower serves as an entry to the growing church campus is part of the design.  Silver Creek Engineering designed all structural systems for the project, including the modified worship area, the addition that will house education and social facilities, and the bell tower.  Silver Creek also performed the site design for the project, which included the integration of a former city street into the proposed church campus.

A Road By Any Other Name?

The People

When the congregation at St. Paul's Episcopal Church decided to expand their boundaries, it wasn't the roadblocks that concerned them, it was the road!  A dead-end block of West 61st Street in Indianapolis divided the existing church buildings and threatened plans for a unified campus.  In a rare move, however, city authorities allowed the church to assume ownership of the former street site.

This did create a few problems, one being that the church needed a new address, since the old one no longer existed.  Formerly located at 10 W. 61st Street, St. Paul's Episcopal Church can now be found (in the same place) at 6050 N. Meridian Street.

On November 16, 2007, the St. Paul's renovation was topped off, literally, with the placement of a 60 foot copper steeple.  A crowd of church members, neighbors, and media crews gathered to watch as a crane placed the steeple on top of the new belltower just before sunset.
