Eisenhower Chapel

chapel

Deeply steeped in history the Eisenhower Chapel was the first chapel to be built on the Air

Force Base and was officially noted as building 27. This non-denominational gathering place was originally one of four chapels that were built semi temporary structure for enlistees to have a place of worship.  While the other three buildings have since been demolished building 27 was preserved due to its connection to President Dwight David “Ike” Eisenhower who attended services with his wife Mamie during the summers of his administration.

In 1981 the chapel was listed on the National Historic Registry.  And in 2007 the chapel was moved 40 degrees to face the plaza.

Under the stewardship of the Lowry Foundation the chapel is a wonderful gathering place for events, concerts, meetings, and celebrations.
