Not surprisingly, English’s Opera House was on this list of theaters designed by J. B. McElfatrick & Son, published in 1892.

The English was not replaced with a church. For years a JC Penneys was on the site, and that building still exists. I have reset the Google map for it. Historic Indianapolis has an excellent article on the English and the site it sat on at: http://historicindianapolis.com/then-and-now-english-hotel-and-opera-house-120-monument-circle/
