Birth: 1857
Death: Jun. 19, 1933

Architect. Though he was one of Brooklyn's most notable and creative late-nineteenth-century architects, little is known of the life and training of George P. Chappell. He first appeared in city directories in 1878 and was a long-time resident of the Bedford-Stuyvesant neighborhood, where
many of his buildings are located. In the 1880s, Chappell designed in the Queen Anne and Romanesque Revival styles, including rowhouses and large suburban Brooklyn residences and St. Bartholomew's Episcopal Church (1886-90), 1227 Pacific Street, a designated New York City Landmark and one of his best works. Chappell also designed the Tompkins Avenue Congregational Church (1889), 480 Tompluns Avenue. After about 1890, he was more eclectic in his use of elements from various styles. In 1899, Chappell formed a partnership with Charles Bosworth. The firm of Chappell & Bosworth, which lasted until 1929, specialized in factories and warehouses, including the Kings County Refrigerating Co. cold storage warehouse.
