A landmark of St. Mary’s School campus, the chapel planned by Upjohn gained transepts and other additions in the late 19th and early 20th century, but its general character remains intact. Whether for this building or another one yet unidentified, the Mary Eliza Battle Papers at the North Carolina State Archives contain an intriguing receipt, dated New York, July 21st, 1857, “Kemp P. Battle, Esqr. /To Richard Upjohn & Co. /To Plans for a chapel, $75.00 /Recd Payment, Richard Upjohn & Co. / If convenient, please remit by draft on New York” (courtesy of George Stevenson).
