The Captain Richard A. Schram Memorial Chapel was originally erected at the Glenview Naval Air Station in 1945. It was constructed using the Navy’s Standard Chapel plans that were influenced by 18th century New England meeting houses. In 1970, it was named to honor the late Captain Richard A. Schram, a renowned Navy stunt flyer, who died while performing in an air show in 1969.
As the Village of Glenview began to redevelop GNAS and integrate the property into the rest of Glenview, many felt it was important to retain a naval historical presence at The Glen. The building was moved to it present location at the corner of Patriot Boulevard and Chestnut Avenue in October 1999 and completely restored by Kimball Hill Builders and the Village of Glenview. It is now operated as a rental facility of the Glenview Park District. The chapel is now one of two left of its kind in the Unites States.
