The Marquand Memorial Chapel is a Romanesque Revival red brick chapel with a 150-foot tall tower located on the historic campus of Hampton University
. A 15-acre portion of the campus along the Hampton River, including many of the older buildings, is a U.S. National Historic Landmark District. The Hampton University Museum
is one of the oldest museums in Virginia with an amazing collection of African American and Native American art. It's well worth a visit. Canon 40D, 1/40 sec @ f/5.6, ISO 800, 8mm fish eye lens.
It must be Romanesque theme day.
I wish I had known yesterday when I made this post that President Obama will be the commencement speaker at HU's May graduation. Say's a lot about the school's history and standing. Way to go Pirates!
Les, loved the Portsmouth pictures on your blog. Guess it was a Romanesque kind of day.
