Building Notes: A Church was built on the site in 1950. The form of the Church was a narrow rectangle. If you look at the floor plan, the Chapel was the front of the Church and it extended back to window 15 which was over the altar. The 1967 Church is an entirely new Church (cornerstone and all). The only part of the Old Church left is the Chapel -- it was left to have something to remember the old Church by. The rest of the Old Church was entirely changed into a two story place for offices, a library, storage, as well as meeting rooms --- no way to know that at one time that space  was the nave of a Church.
