Heinz Chapel

Located on the campus of the University of Pittsburgh, Heinz Chapel opened in 1938. The Heinz Memorial Chapel began as a gift. Henry John Heinz, the founder of the H.J. Heinz Company, wanted to honor his mother, Anna Margaretta Heinz, with “a building” at the University.


I was lucky enough to be invited to photograph this great piece of Pittsburgh history. Anyone not from the Pittsburgh area may remember seeing Heinz Chapel in the movie Lorenzo's Oil.
