Murray 1st Ward

The Murray First Ward Chapel was completed in 1907.

It was sold in the 1960s, and now houses the Mount Vernon Academy.

 The school still uses the building, including the original Recreation Hall, which is connected to the east side.

Of course, the biggest change visible in the pictures is the absence of the large stained glass window at the front. According to the Church website, it was a window depiction of Christ beckoning "Come Unto Me." Fortunately, the glass was preserved and moved to the new chapel built down the street. I'll have pictures of that chapel in my next post.
