Claude and Starck, Architects

— 1914-1915 —

This limestone chapel was designed by the prolific Madison architectural firm of Claude and Starck in the Elizabethan Revival style. The building's asymmetrical design features a monumentally scaled entrance and a ribbon of Tudor-arched windows at the first and second stories. The building is also significant for its association with the religious history of the community as the first Protestant church in the city to purposefully serve the student population by locating close to campus, and also as the first Lutheran church in Madison to conduct all services in English.
