Osborne Chapel featured in American Profile

Baldwin City, Kan. — The Clarice L. Osborne Memorial Chapel, part of the Baldwin City campus landscape since 1995, is featured in this week’s American Profile, a magazine that celebrates the American spirit.

The feature “Europe in America” takes a look at five landmarks transplanted from the Old Country. The chapel is from Sproxton, England, where it was first built in 1864 and where former British Prime Minister Lady Margaret Thatcher's father had preached in the mid-1930s. The chapel was moved stone by stone to Baldwin City in 1995 and was dedicated in October 1996 by Margaret Thatcher.

In addition to the chapel, the other landmarks highlighted in American Profile are the London Bridge in Lake Havasu City, Ariz.; De Zwann Windmill in Holland, Mich.; and the Monastery of St. Bernard de Clairvaux in North Miami Beach, Fla.
