Built as a memorial to the wife of Young Harris College’s benefactor, Judge Young L. G. Harris, this lovely chapel has been the center of student life on campus since its construction. It was renovated in 2009. When I was a student here, it was a place of refuge but also a place of learning. I was fortunate to hear a reading by the late novelist Raymond Andrews here in 1988.
