Harbison Chapel

Harbison Chapel

​Harbison Chapel​

Harbison Chapel is the center of the religious life of the campus. It provides an inspiring place of worship and a place for quiet meditation. It was built by the sons of Samuel P. Harbison as a memorial to their father, who for many years served the College as a trustee. The beauty of the interior is enhanced by hand-carved woodwork and jewel-like stained glass windows. The organ, a four manual Kimball, is a memorial to Frances St. Leger Babcock, wife of F.R. Babcock, a former president of the Board of Trustees. The east and west transepts of the chapel were gifts respectively of Miss Ethel Pew, a trustee of the College, and the Presbyterian Church.
