Tiny Church - The Traveler's Chapel

Field review by the editors.

Nashville, Illinois

A Lincoln Log version of a church, awesomely rustic, the Traveler's Chapel is adjacent to a convenience store parking lot. A narrow, elevated wooden walkway leads to the door. The inside walls are covered with Bible verses scrawled on bits of plywood.

In an unusual departure from run-of-the-mill tiny churches, there are no pews -- just a padded piece of wood for kneeling in front of a floor-to-ceiling cross.

The chapel is no longer inviting public access.
