The Old Chapel at Union College in Schenectady

The American Red Cross
truck is parked outside
the Old Chapel, located in
Geological Hall.

Geological Hall was built in the mid 1800s.  Besides the chapel, the building housed a natural history museum, the library and the College Treasurer's Office.

Attendance at daily service
was mandatory.

The chapel was the only space on campus large enough for all the Union College students to meet. For many years, it was the heart of the campus.  

The Old Chapel Bell...

It was restored with 
funds raised by the
Class of 1947.

Very basic blood donation
information for donors
to read.

All blood types are needed.

The Red  Cross is using
the first floor of the
Old Chapel.

After I donated blood, I
walked up the stairs to
the gallery.

I examine the woodwork
in this section of
Geological Hall.

Groups of chairs & ottomans
are available for students
to sit & study or hang
out & socialize.

This is a very nice space.  I'm glad that it's used for different functions.
