Memorial Church

Located on the campus of Hampton University, Memorial Church—also known as Memorial Chapel-- is an Italian-Romanesque structure that features a 150 ft. tower and four-faced illuminated clock.  Built in 1886, the elaborate building was designed by New York architect J.C. Cady.  It is still used as a college sanctuary for non-denominational religious services.  The chapel is one of six National Historic Landmarks on campus. The pews are made of yellow pine and were built by Hampton trade-school students.  Carved African-American and Native-American faces adorn the trim throughout the chapel.
