Fort Scott Chapel
Built in 1941, when military infrastructure was under rapid construction as the army mobilized for World War II, the chapel follows a standard design replicated at nearby Fort Baker and Fort Barry, with almost identical versions at other camps across the nation. With capacity for 300 worshippers, it served all denominations and included a space for sacred Jewish texts. Though other multipurpose buildings could have been used for religious services, the chapel was recognized as a valuable morale booster. Its iconic familiarity provided those who served here with a symbolic and psychological sense of community.
