Construction on Oakland Memorial Chapel was begun in 1840 by Dr. Jeremiah Chamberlain, the college's founder and president. It was completed in 1851, two years after the death of Dr. Chamberlain. While this structure was consistently referred to as the Chapel, the building also housed recitation and library rooms, space for philosophical and chemical apparatus, and an observatory in the cupola. Oakland Chapel therefore united the religious and academic activities of the college in one building.
