Notes
Survey number HABS MD-1109-P
Building/structure dates: 1896 initial construction
Building/structure dates: 1902 subsequent work
Significance: The chapel was one of the first buildings constructed on the campus. Its rustic, shingle-style form complimented the Queen Anne inn and the natural surroundings. The structure's bell tower, stained-glass windows, and shingled-siding were typical components of many Gothic Revival church buildings in the mid- to late nineteenth century. Like other quaint, picturesque architectural forms, the building embodied a romanticization of natural materials and distant cultures. The chapel at Woodstock, the late nineteenth-century Arts & Crafts colony located in New York State, had a similar rustic, wooden design.
