Historic Preservation Commission to Hold Open House at Brady Chapel Nov. 11

Brady Chapel

An iconic Pocatello building will be opening its doors to the public. 


The Pocatello Historic Preservation Commission (HPC) will be hosting an open house at Brady Chapel, located in Mountain View Cemetery, Monday, November 11 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. At the event, HPC members will answer questions about the nearly 100-year-old structure. 


“The open house is an opportunity for the community to see the interior of this storied Gate City building,” said Terri Neu, City of Pocatello Staff Liaison to the Historic Preservation Commission. “The Brady Chapel is only open a few times a year, so don’t miss your chance to take a peek at Pocatello’s history.” 


Brady Chapel was dedicated on Memorial Day in 1922 and was constructed by the family of former Idaho Governor and Senator James Brady following his death. Built in a French Gothic Revival style, the Chapel was designed by renowned architect Frank Paradice. In the 1970s, Brady Chapel was placed on the National Register of Historic Places.
