Tompkins Memorial Chapel is the Oldest Building on the Utica Campus, Dating Back to 1911
Its colonial architecture of red brick and white trim makes it a landmark of Central New York. It has a number of beautiful stained glass windows, several of which were made by Tiffany. The dark wood pews, and the regal red carpeting, create an atmosphere of elegance.
