Historical Summary:
611 Randolph St (now the Good Shepherd Lutheran Church) was designed by Samuel E. Bird and built by Harold Peterson for the United Lutheran Church in 1940. Prior to the church building, the lot 630 Randolph St was occupied by a 2-story building with commercial on the bottom floor and apartments above. This building was built prior to 1902. It had post foundations and became deteriorated in the early twentieth century. It was demolished in 1930. A residence, 605 Randolph St, remained on the lot to the south of the church and was used for office and classroom space following the church's construction in 1940. In 1956 a substantial side and rear addition was built on the church. The residence at 605 Randolph St was demolished in 1974.
