Setting of many outdoor weddings, this sanctuary in the woods was inspired by the Reverend Loyal Morris Thompson. The chapel was developed with the help of the Funk and Stubblefield families. The pews are logs made of American Red Elm, and the pulpit is a tree stump.
The path to the Chapel in the trees is located across
the road from the picnic shelter.
the Templed Trees
O the sweep of the living pillars
In my chapel of Templed trees-
My eyes wander wistfully upward
To its ceiling of branches and leaves.
Its frescoes no artist can copy
Kingly towers the oak at the altar,
When the spirit stirs in the woodland,
Every weed, every bush, every flower
-LOYAL MORRIS THOMPSON
