The Chapel

The Town of Livingston has a long and storied history. Madison County courthouse was the last building standing on the old town square before relocating to Canton. The town is making a comeback thanks to developers, lead by David Landrum and Mike Bollenbacher. The group began rebuilding the town shortly after the land was purchased in 2006.

The chapel was built in 1907 in Camden, Mississippi. The structure served as chapel for St. Andrew’s Episcopal School in Ridgeland. The school is undergoing a big expansion and decided to donate the structure to Livingston as a start for building their new chapel on the original Livingston town square.

The stained glass rose window design went through many iterations. Starting with the light house and a spring that feeds into a scenic lake. The idea of the light led to the central theme of a morning star. The star interpenetrates the earth while the living waters flow across the landscape. Amelia Key was the glass artist selecting the colors from Andy’s final rendering and Paul Farrar leaded the window.

“On a recent evening I stopped by the Holocaust Memorial at Beth Israel Congregation. I was taken back by the detail of the lighting at night against the dark sky.  The Memorial is open free to the public 24/7/365.  Plans are underway to include the Memorial on tours of sites in Jackson as well as religious services by the Synagogue.”READ MORE
