Tiny Chapel

Went to the Tiny Chapel near Dickson last weekend and was not able to enter the chapel. I am not sure if this is something recent but there was gate with a padlock and several signs stating "No Trespassing." I was able to take a couple of photos, but it would have been nice to been able to see the inside of the chapel and hear the music.

Padlocked gate and boarded windows. Not able to go in. :-(

In response to Laramie 6/13, there are no satanists using this church -- why would they? Are you trying to lessen the use of the chapel? It is a place for a few people to go to when they wish to pray, to God, for a loved one. Simple as that. I have gone there to write messages to loved ones who have passed, or to sit in silent contemplation. In all my years living a few miles from the church, and there have been many, I have never, until Laramie's post, heard about satanists. A grain of salt, and a little local education before posting.

The church is kept open all the time. When you walk in, if you open the door all the way, church music starts playing. It's a cute little out-of-the-way oddity.

I've visited the Tiny Chapel many times, and as a teenager I know that this is a very popular attraction for kids around Ardmore/Dickson. There are several "ghost stories" behind this chapel, but none of them are true, but it is also said that local satanists meet and do rituals there in the night. It is very nice though, aside from the candles laying here and there. I recommend to go during daylight -- it is less creepy and you can see better; there are no lights around it.
