Annapolis Off The Beaten Path: 5 reviews and 4 photos

  A Place For All Faiths
by lmkluque

With it's bronzed-dome, the U.S. Naval Chapel on the Academy campus, 101 Cooper Road, is a lovely building. There are not many bronzed-domes in the U.S.A. but this is one to see while in Annapolis and it serves all faiths at various times. The corner stone was set in 1904 and the dedication happened four years later. A tour of this chapel is possible except during weddings, funerals and memorial services. All are welcome to join the Brigade of Midshipmen for church services.

Beneath the chaple lies the John Paul Jones crypt. In 1913, the remains of John Paul Jones were laid to rest in the crypt and the public is welcomed to visit. Check for day and hours.

What is it they say, "There are no atheists in a fox hole?"

Well, that might as well be appropriate for Midshipman too!
