Villa Chapel

Gathering to give update on status of Villa Chapel (Erie Times News)

May 12 2007

The top teaser headline on the front page of today's Erie Times News read "SAVE VILLA CHAPEL..." Next to the headline, a detail of a stained glass window helped readers learn what beauty was threatened. Dana Massing's story began on C-1 and included photos of the interior of the chapel in its neglected, but easily salvagable condition. Massing wrote "Kidder and Jesse Fiske Jr. of Fiske and Sons Inc. said the chapel doesn't appear to have suffered structural failures... The chapel group would like Pennrose to give stewardship of the building to the Lake Erie Region Conservancy, a local non-profit dedicated to the identification, conservation and protection of the Lake Erie region's unique natural, cultural and historical resources."
