The Eisenhower Chapel at Lowry in Denver.

The Air Force Academy wasn't always located in Colorado Springs. Its first class was enrolled at Lowry Air Force Base in Denver until the southern facility was complete. The AFA chapel, currently undergoing renovation, brings to mind Lowry's chapel which had a famous regular visitor. President Dwight Eisenhower worshiped there so often, it was eventually re-named after him.
