Kalamazoo College's Stetson Chapel is currently undergoing extensive renovations to restore and protect the building. The building was originally constructed by Miller-Davis Company in 1931 and is listed in the National Registry of Historic Places.
The current project, managed by Miller-Davis, is focused on the exterior of the bell tower. The building is being sealed, all windows are being replaced and the brick is being repointed. Additionally, the project includes repairing the plaster and repainting the interior of the chapel.
Stetson Chapel, noticeable from many viewpoints in Kalamazoo, is an integral part of campus and the Kalamazoo community. The Chapel has hosted many famous people, including J. Edgar Hoover, Ralph Abernathy and Aleksandr Kerensky. Stetson Chapel's restoration will allow it to continue being used for community events, weddings and concerts for years to come.
