The distinctive stone building with a crenellated tower on the corner of South Grove and Main Street in East Aurora is known on the Roycroft Campus as the Chapel. However, when it was first built, it was called the Roycroft Library for several years. Functions held there were announced in the East Aurora Advertiser as being held at the Roycroft Library building. It wasn’t until October 3, 1901 that the structure was referred to as a Chapel in this listing: “Concert at Roycroft Chapel Wednesday evening.”
On this October 3rd, 2014, (and October 4 and 5) come to the Roycroft Campus for the annual Roycroft Conference and see all the original buildings of this National Historic Landmark for yourself!
