    Wild guesses

    By on

    1) Original chapel at St. John's seminary (replaced in early 20th century-although seems more protestant aesthetic in its simplicity)

    2) Very institutional look - so I'd say perhaps a chapel on one of the universities - MIT's old location? Perhaps BU?

    Looks a lot like the ballroom at the Lyman Estate
