The Rock announces project to restore the original Stained Glass Windows from the 1904 World's Fair

Saint Louis, Missouri - St. Alphonsus Liguori "Rock" Catholic Church officially announced today a restoration project aimed at repairing its 54 Meyer and Co. stained glass windows. The iconic windows were installed for the 1904 World's Fair by Meyer and Co. It is said that during the exhibition, Meyer and Co. told attendees to go to The Rock and view the windows, shipped from Munich, Germany.


After over 120 years, the seals bordering the windows have deteriorated causing water to leak in. The project is estimated to cost $162,000 USD to restore all the windows, at about $3,000 each. Learn more about the project and information to contribute here.
