The Florence Henry Memorial Chapel is a non-sectarian located in The
Highlands, a prestigious north Seattle community. The Chapel was built in
1905 by Horace Henry, in memory of his daughter Florence. Horace moved to
Seattle for the railroad project but after his daughter passed away,
picked out a spot in the area surrounding the Seattle Golf Club and
Country Club to build a chapel, even though he was never a resident of The
Highlands. The Chapel was designed by W. Marberry Somerville and was
opened in 1911 and many features of the Chapel’s interior were donations.
The Chapel had a full time minister by 1949, and today has Episcopal
services on Sunday. The Chapel continues to be run by a committee and is
open to all residents of The Highlands.
