St. Peters German Evangelical Church

Church Hall and Rectory
19-25 Winant Pl.; 1883, 1926
Designated July 26, 1994

Built by industrialist Balthasar Kreischer for the then German community in the village of Kreischerville (now Charleston). The Carpenter Gothic church is distinguished by its open porch, "domestic in scale and form." Around 1900 a community of Hungarian immigrants began to settle in Kreischerville and in 1919 they purchased the property.  The building complex includes an entry foyer and office (formerly a caretaker's apartment), and an auditorium, added in the 1890s and used as an annex to P.S. 4. The rectory was built in 1926 for the pastor and his family.
