Taylor Prayer Chapel

Taylor Prayer Chapel is mentioned in a novel titled, "All The Bright Places," by Jennifer Niven. Directions to find the chapel, a description of the place, and the dedication for its existence are clearly outlined in the novel. I found your page with its photos. It looks just as the author described it.

Algae pond.

Taylor Prayer Chapel

The Taylor Prayer Chapel was a bit hard to find. It is right near a Dollar General. There is also a little lake next to it that has this thick layer of green algae completely covering the entire thing. It's really strange looking (although I'm guessing the algae probably comes and goes).

[Natalie, 09/22/2012]

Someone said a prayer for algae, and it was answered.

Tiny chapel.

Tiny Church - Taylor Prayer Chapel

Tiny church located just off the highway in Farmersburg, Indiana. Place for people to stop and pray or just to rest if needed while driving. Built in memoriam to people killed in a car accident. Not always staffed but is always open to public. They will do weddings if asked -- I know because this is where I was married. Very pretty little chapel.
