Confederate Memorial Chapel

-A A +A
1887, Marion J. Dimmock. 2900 Grove Ave. Open by appointment
  • Confederate Memorial Chapel

Across the street from All Saints Reformed is another remainder of the Confederate veterans' camp that used to occupy this site, a wistful Carpenter's Gothic structure. Dimmock, who was a veteran of Jeb Stuart's cavalry and liked to use the title “Captain,” was the appropriate architect for the structure. Paid for by the veterans themselves, it served them until the last one died in 1941. The interior is simple but contains a nice set of stock painted Victorian glass.
