One of the oldest and most historic buildings on Hill Air Force Base was renamed March 18 for the man who was most instrumental in preserving it.
During a ceremony held at the Hill Aerospace Museum, the museum's chapel was renamed for Col. Nathan Mazer, who, along with other Top of Utah community efforts, helped get the museum built and brought the chapel there.
The newly named Mazer Memorial Chapel was dedicated on the 100th anniversary of its namesake's birth.
The chapel was built in late 1942, renovated in 1945 after a major fire and again remodeled in 1948.
Last week, the Base Chapel transformed into a rain forest oasis during the evenings as it hosted its annual Vacation Bible School camp Aug. 2-6. The projected date for next year's VBS is Aug. 1 through Aug. 5.
This year's VBS theme was "SonQuest Rainforest" and the newly renovated chapel, as well as the Chapel Annex, were decorated with tropical sets while children attended tropical-themed activities and classes.
