History of the Chapel

In 1872, Henry S. Crocker, the manager of the Pequot House, an elegant summer resort hotel, built a small chapel for non-sectarian worship near the hotel. The chapel is a fine example of the Carpenter Gothic Revival style espoused by Alexander Jackson Downing, which uses varying structure and color to enrich the building. Its design has been attributed to James Renwick. Buttresses in the rear of the chapel emphasize the gothic tradition while the board and batten construction stresses the rustic application of this style.

Tiffany Windows

In the south transept of the chapel are two stained glass windows by Louis Comfort Tiffany, who was a regular summer visitor at the Pequot House. These enchanting windows are hung together in a side aisle, doubling their artistic impact. The windows were given to the chapel in 1895 by Mrs. William Woodward in memory of her husband, who donated the land for the chapel, and of his mother. The windows were placed next to the pews the Woodwards always occupied.
