  • Description
    Architectural rendering of Duke's Chapel Methodist Episcopal Church, in Bragtown, Durham, NC. The church was founded by William James Duke, brother of Washington Duke and uncle of university's founder, James B. Duke. A Methodist church on the site dated from the late Nineteenth Century, and a new church was built in 1926. The latter may have been built as a trial run for the stone from the Duke Quarry before proceeding with the construction of the campus.
