Historic Chapel Announcing Future Plans at Saturday Concert


One historic Auburn location will soon unveil the preliminary plans for its upcoming exterior restoration.

While work continues on the chapel’s interior, Executive Director of the Community Preservation Committee (CPC) Board that oversees the building Kathy Walker said the group plans to begin exterior renovations this year. Work will include redoing the driveway to add more parking and connect the property’s two parking lots. Landscaping work, including new shrubbery and trees, is also planned.

Walker also stated that work is expected to begin in September.

Willard Memorial Chapel will unveil its plans this Saturday during a concert by Joe Whiting.

The concert is being held in honor of former CPC Board member Member Nancy Hussey who passed away in 2020.

Proceeds from the concert will go to support the restoration process.

The chapel contains the last surviving complete installation by Louis Comfort Tiffany in the world.

More information on Saturday’s concert can be found on the chapel’s website.
