Hand Chapel

Built in the early 1970’s, Florence Hollis Hand Chapel is nestled among the scenic woodlands of the Mount Vernon campus. 

The chapel boasts a luminous open space with hardwood flooring and fixed pews on both sides of the mezzanine level.

Ranging from performing arts events, banquets, weddings, rehearsals and meetings, this unique, multifunctional event space can be utilized for many purposes.

This space is also suitable for the use of audio/visual equipment including projectors, large speakers and microphones. Hand Chapel does not have an elevator so has limited ADA accessibility.
