Semper Fidelis Memorial Chapel Progress

DSC_3466


Construction on the Semper Fidelis Memorial Chapel began after the holidays. Last summer, they built the road to the site and the parking lot .

This is what it looked like in September and pretty much all through the holidays:

This is what it looks like now (not quite the same angle).

You may notice the 2x4s sticking out of the ground in a line. I believe that marks the length and side of one wall. You may be able to tell from the drawings, that there will be a water feature. I think this may be the part of that future water feature. We'll have to see how it develops.

Hi there,

Great blog! Love your posts about the Marine Museum, especially since I do pr for the Foundation.

In fact, I'd love to give you a preview of the Foundation's next big project, but I can't find an e-mail address for you. What's the best way to reach you?

Thanks--look forward to chatting.

I heard before that there will be also a fountain and a network of paths going to the wooden ground.

Yes, that is correct, there will be a water feature that is to start at the Chapel and then run down into the woods of Semper Fi Memorial Park. In the photograph of the sign, you can see in the bottom picture the artists concept of the water feature coming from the chapel.
