Gunnison Chapel

This Fall Semester 2013 notably began with the fire that damaged Gunnison Memorial Chapel, and destroyed the Chapel’s steeple.  I have a personal connection to the building, my wife Agnes and I were married in the Chapel, and given it is next to ODY it’s a building I’ve looked at almost every day for almost sixteen years.  It is what I turn to when I reflect.  When the fire occurred I wanted to write something, and using materials and photographs from our Special Collections and Vance University Archives I would like to submit this “wondering a’loud” essay to the FODYLL Blog, and the FODYLL community.  Hopefully this touches a chord with folks who have their own connection to Gunnison, a building that embodies much of what is central to our St. Lawrence Community, and to the North Country…
