Montpelier Tabernacle 1920

  • Architect: Pope and Burton
  • Groundbreaking 1918
  • Dedication 1920
  • Style: Romanesque Revival arches. The chapel of the tabernacle was built to double as a stage for concerts, which explains its arena-like form. The tabernacle is designed according to the “Akron plan,” a semi-circular layout that features areas below the balcony that can be sealed off for Sunday School classes, a style pioneered in Akron Ohio’s First Methodist Episcopal Church.
