About Memorial Church
The Memorial Church of Harvard University, more commonly known as the Harvard Memorial Church (or simply MemChurch) is a building on the campus of Harvard University.
The current Memorial Church was built in 1932 in honor of the men and women of Harvard University who died in World War I.
Other memorials have been established within the building commemorating those Harvardians who later died in World War II, the Korean War, and the Vietnam War. The Memorial Church, part of a vibrant interfaith network of Harvard University, is an interdenominational Protestant church in the midst of Harvard Yard that serves as a place of spiritual refuge to the entire community. “MemChurch” stands opposite Widener Library as a visible reminder of the historical and spiritual heritage that has sustained Harvard for nearly four centuries.
