Baltimore, Maryland — The American Northeast (Mid-Atlantic)
Chapel of the Presentation of the Blessed Virgin Mary in the Temple
From 1808 to 1809, the basement chapel was used by Mother Elizabeth Seton: in this chapel, she and her followers took their first vows. In 1829, the Oblate Sisters of Providence were founded here by Father Jourbert.
In 1916, the interior of the main chapel was remodeled - the altar was moved further back into the apse; tile flooring and oak pews were installed in the nave. At the same time, the chapel's steeple was removed.
In 1959-1960, the chapel was exteriorly renovated by James Cox & Son, Inc.
