Bigelow Chapel 3

[click image to enlarge]

I wonder if Quincy architect, Gridley Bryant, envisioned what the Bigelow Chapel in Mt. Auburn Cemetery would look like in its fall setting almost 170 years after helping to design it with Dr. Jacob Bigelow. The Quincy granite and autumn colors are a beautiful contrast together. You can see a springtime post of the chapel here and a monochrome image here.

What a beautiful chapel! My mother's side of the family were Biglows originally from Vermont and somewhere along the line dropped the "e" in the spelling. I shall have to research this particular one in my copy of the Bigelow Genealogy.

Bigelow Chapel is beautiful in autumn and spring and I think it would be equally so covered in a blanket of snow. I also like the monochrome picture. Very nice for a Sunday offering!
