Chapel Transitions to Thornton Park Historic District

John Moore preserves the Stephen L. Rusk Memorial Chapel steeple and cupola from the Orlando Naval Training Center (NTC).

Moore outlines the transition of the chapel from the NTC to his home in  this excerpt  (1:30) from an oral history interview on May 10, 2012. 

In its new home in Thornton Park Historic District the chapel is remembered as the steeple holds its place in Orlando’s memory.
