Brady Chapel open house slated for Memorial Day

May 21, 2019 GMT

POCATELLO - An icon of Pocatello architecture will be open to the public Memorial Day.

Monday, May 27, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., the members of the Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission will host an open house at Brady Chapel with commissioners available to answer questions about the nearly 100-year-old building. Located in Mountain View Cemetery, Brady Chapel was built by the family of former Senator and Governor James Brady after his death. The structure was dedicated on Memorial Day in 1922. The 1970s saw the chapel added to the National Register of Historic Places.

“The Brady Chapel is only open a few times a year and Memorial Day is one of them,” said Terri Neu. “It is the community’s opportunity to see the inside of this beautiful chapel that honors someone who played a large part in Idaho’s history.”
