Roofing and Gutter Project

Effective immediately, due to the active construction project with potential risk of falling debris, the Garrett Chapel grounds and building will be closed to visitors during the work week. The grounds will be open all day on weekends & holidays.
 
Garret Memorial Chapel Roofing Project

In recent years, Garrett Chapel has begun to see some aspects of the roofing and gutter system fail, resulting in water in the building in a number of areas. As part of ongoing preservation and restoration efforts, a project to repair failing sections of the roof and replace the gutters began April 9th.

This project is being guided by Bero Architecture, with work being executed by Easton Specialties Inc.. The work initially started as a relatively modest roofing repair and gutter replacement has expanded into a necessary full roof replacement. Work is anticipated to continue into mid-summer.

Update on Window Restoration:

June 1, 2016. Artists from Judson Studios have begun to lay out the remaining shards salvaged from the window extensively damaged during a break in attempt March 9, 2016. This process will help them evaluate what can be salvaged of the original window, and what pieces need to be remade. In addition to the shards and fragments, the have the panel directly above the broken window to assure a match to the original design and layout. Judson was the original studio who designed and executed this window, and remains in possession of the original designs, should they be needed to complete the restoration. They have worked extensively in restoring the works of Frederick Wilson, the artist of this window.

Garret Memorial Chapel Window Project

In addition to this window, Garrett Chapel has 17 windows designed and executed by Frederick Wilson, one of the most notable stained glass artists of the 20th century. The collection includes some of his most unique works, the Crypt windows, which are based on children’s stories and poems of personal meaning to Paul and Evelyn Garrett.

Garrett Memorial Chapel

 

 

The Garrett Chapel, also known as the “Little Chapel on the Mount” was built by Evelyn and Paul Garrett, who founded and ran Garrett and Company from 1902 until 1940. Garrett and Company was once among the largest wine producers in the world, with peak output exceeding 10 million gallons per year. Much of the grapes were grown on this very spot, on approximately 4000 acres of land in the Finger Lakes.

Today, the Garrett Chapel stands as the last significant remnant of this once great organization. The chapel was erected in memory of Evelyn and Paul's son Charles, who died of tuberculosis in 1929. Many of the Garrett children died young, and Charles was the only son to survive to adulthood. With him died the family name and the heir apparent of Garrett and Company. Survived by his parents and three sisters, the family sought to commemorate his life and the principles to which they subscribed by building this chapel on the place he loved most – Bluff Point. » Read More «
