The Plattsburgh Memorial Chapel (circa 1933) is a brick structure with a slate roof.
The Chapel, of a Norman type architecture, has two transepts for worship, one for a
Jewish tabernacle and the other for a Catholic altar.
It is approximately 81 feet
long by 52 feet wide. Used bricks were specified in the contract so the building
would match the entire post architecture. The chapel is a neo-gothic rendering of
a classic Anglican English Village Church. A vaulted wood-beamed ceiling
adds to the
grandeur of the space and contributes to its superior acoustics. The long fir ridge
pole was shipped from the west coast on a special flat car. The interior lighting,
forged from wrought iron, was created in the post�s wheelwright shop. Downstairs,
there is a central nave for the congregation and pews, two small transepts, a raised
chancel for the altar, choir and organ. A small sacristy, a bathroom and a small sitting
room are in the ell. The Chapel seats approximately 200 people. Upstairs is a small chamber,
over the chancel .The building was designed and dedicated as an Interfaith,
Interdenominational Chapel, to memorialize soldiers who died in WW1. Adria Maude Semple
Langdon, President of the Episcopal Church Women�s group based in New York City, the Church
Women�s Auxiliary, did the principal fundraising.
