Interfaith Chapel

-A A +A
1967, Tracy R. Stephens
  • (West Virginia Collection within the Carol M. Highsmith Archive, Library of Congress, Prints and Photographs Division)

Far more streamlined in proportions and details than earlier campus structures, the chapel relates to them in materials (red brick with limestone trim) and scale more than in design. Its long side faces the campus from the west and terminates in polygonal bays at both ends. Contemporary stained glass fills the tall vertical windows on either side of a recessed central entrance, and a narrow central spire rises from the ridge of the shallow hipped roof.
