Fort Belvoir Chapel
Fort Belvoir, Virginia

#NC-08150-WP - Notecards

The all-denominational Fort Belvoir Chapel sits on the Fairfax Plantation that George Washington roamed as a boy and surveyed as an engineer. Fittingly, the stained glass window in the chapel depicts Washington at prayer at Valley Forge. The scene matches a description given by Isaac Potts, a Quaker who stumbled upon Washington alone in the woods during a wicked winter that left the Commander-in-Chief's troops in tatters.

Another stained-glass window, in memory of Major General Albert Carl Lieber, has a theme of victory and reward with a Supreme Being. The scene includes soldiers at attention as Abraham kneels to accept the blessing of King Melchizedek, the priest of the most high God as related in Genesis.

Designed by Victor E. De Meers, the Colonial-style chapel was completed December 28, 1956 and dedicated January 25, 1957. It has become a very popular site for weddings of all denominations.
