When Barrington was incorporated as a village in 1865, the cornerstone was laid for what is now St. Paul United Church of Christ. At that time, Main Street was only a dirt road, once the footpath of Potawatomi Indians. Later, men returning home to Barrington as the Civil War came to an end, helped the young church start the new building. Today, Main Street is paved and bustling with traffic and the iconic white wooden church with its thriving Peace Garden has served as a beautiful backdrop for many weddings.

This year, even in the midst of drought, the Council of Barrington Garden clubs recognized St Paul's garden with an award for Artistic Originality and Distinction.

The church is about to celebrate its 150th year of incorporation and is looking forward to 150 more by updating the building to better serve the community. Proceeds from the resale will go toward the installation of an elevator and improving handicap facilities, as well as supporting various mission projects.

St. Paul is located at 401 E. Main St., Barrington. For information, phone (847) 381-0460, or visit
