This unique chapel was built in 1893. Architect Louis Curtis[s] of Kansas City designed the structure after an old gothic chapel he had seen in England.

It has served veterans of all wars from the Mexican War (1848) on. The beautiful stained glass windows depict both religious and patriotic themes.

Protestant services are held in the upper level, Immanuel Chapel, and Catholic in the lower level, Holy Ghost Chapel.

Hours open are from dawn to dusk daily.
