A window detail in the Chapel of the Veterans, shot using available light in the morning.
The chapel was built in 1893 and was designed the by Louis Curtis of Kansas City, and inspired by a Gothic chapel that he had seen being renovated in England. The Chapel is constructed from unusually long, thin clay bricks and sandstone. The tower has eleven tubular bells and three gargoyles.
At the time it was built, the complex it served was known as the Western Branch National Home of Disabled Volunteer Soldiers. For many years the Chapel of the Veterans was the only church in the United States where Protestant and Catholic religious services could be conducted under one roof at the same time, and the chapel was featured in Ripley's Believe It or Not.
The lower level of the Chapel of the Veterans, with an entrance on the end, is the Catholic chapel named the Holy Ghost Chapel. The upper level is the Protestant chapel called Immanuel Chapel.
