The Brown Chapel and Fine Arts Building on the Lyon College campus will be closed to the public due to renovation from May 30 to August 15, 2017.
Built almost 60 years ago, Brown Chapel currently suffers from decades of deferred maintenance. This summer, its auditorium will receive a facelift, including refurbished seating, new windows and shades, repainting and floor tiles.
The exterior of the entire building will receive much needed work on windows, columns, outer brick and drainage.
Current and former students, Batesville citizens and college friends who have long enjoyed and benefited from Brown Chapel know its importance as an events venue and place of worship. Lyon hopes these renovations will allow the chapel to continue to serve and thrive.
Brown Chapel will reopen and continue to play its role in the community once renovations are complete.
If you are interested in reserving a space, please contact Facilities Coordinator Kay Rush at 870-307-7325.
Lyon is more than just a college. It's a community distinguished by its academic curriculum, unique honor and social systems, and award-winning professors.
