The Old Chapel at UMass Amherst, perhaps the university’s most recognizable building, has reopened to the campus community following a $21 million renovation.
As the Globe’s Andy Rosen wrote in October: “What had been a dated, cluttered interior with facilities too old for safe public occupancy has given way to an airy space intended to re-establish the chapel as a focal point of the campus that grew up around it.’’
Chancellor Kumble R. Subbaswamy made the project a priority. The granite and sandstone building dates to 1884 and was added to the National Register of Historic Places last year.
