As an island of culture in the untamed frontier, many of the city’s businesses and churches built lavish structures, often employing noted architects such as George W. Maher, Purcell & Elmslie, and Charles G. Maybury. Extensive stained-glass windows were an integral part of their designs, and the world’s finest craftmen were hired to make them. Today, the buildings and their glorious windows remain as a symbol of that fascinating era.
