College Hall Chapel at Vermont College Information:
College Hall is located at the top of Seminary Hill overlooking the city of Montpelier, Vermont just off College Street.
College Hall was originally built to be used as a seminary for the Vermont Methodist Conference in 1872. It was, at that time, used to house offices, classrooms, a gymnasium, and a chapel. The chapel comprised the entire second and third floors of the central pavilion.
A double manual pipe organ from 1884 is still in place in the College Hall Chapel.
Today, College Hall is used as classroom space for Vermont College. It is also home to the Thomas W. Wood Art Gallery.
