Lebanon Valley College - Miller Chapel
Annville, Pennsylvania

Lebanon Valley College, Annville, Pennsylvania is home to Miller Chapel, dedicated on October 30, 1966, and named in honor of Frederic K. Miller, 12th president of the College. Located at the center of the campus, at the intersection of the social and academic quads, it symbolically calls attention to the religious heritage of the College. Built in the shape of a cross, the spire rises nearly 110 feet above ground level.

The first (upper) level contains the sanctuary, narthex, meditation chapel, and office of the chaplain. The sanctuary provides seating for 1000 people, 700 of whom are accommodated in the nave and 300 in the gallery. The meditation chapel, in the northwest corner, is a quiet place for private prayer and small group worship. A handicap bathroom is in the southwest corner.

The ground (lower) level contains five classrooms, a large lecture room with seating for over 150, two offices, a comfortably furnished lounge, the Hurst Diversity Library, and restrooms.

Miller Chapel is home of a five-division, sixty-one rank pipe organ built by the Schantz Organ Company and dedicated on October 20, 1968. The organ is placed on the west gallery speaking directly down the nave of the Chapel.
