The Chapel Restoration, Cold Spring

The Chapel Restoration in Cold Spring was the first Catholic Church north of Manhattan, built to serve the Irish immigrants who worked at the nearby West Point Foundry. It was designed by a 19-year-old immigrant in the 1830s, abandoned in the early 1900s and struck by fire in the 1920s. The once beautiful building, overlooking the Hudson River, was given a new life when local volunteers rescued and renovated the property in the 1970s. Fully restored, it plays host to concerts, poetry readings, craft beer and food truck parties and formal events. Read more about this beautiful gem on the Chronogram web site.
