Hand Chapel

Built in the early 1970s, Florence Hollis Hand Chapel is an award-winning multifunctional event space and performing arts center.

It was a gift to the Mount Vernon Seminary and College from the Callaway family and is nestled among thirty-nine dogwood trees, which each represent a graduate of Mount Vernon Seminary's final graduating class of 1969.

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

This space is great for:

  • performing arts events
  • banquets
  • weddings
  • rehearsals
  • meetings
