Stone Chapel has a wealth of history held within its walls. Once the location of compulsory chapel for Drury students, it is now a favorite location for weddings, VIP receptions, campus events and a community venue.
The oldest stone structure in Springfield was constructed with donations from East Coast benefactors. Frederic Marguand of New York City and Valerie G. Stone of Malden, Mass., each gave a lead grant of $5,000 to fund the construction of Stone Chapel. The widow of a wealthy industrialist, Mrs. Stone later gave an additional $20,000, and the chapel was named in her honor.
