Travelers Chapel

It's a quaint little church that provides a book at the lectern where travelers can leave prayer requests. Definitely worth the trip just to take a look.

Tiny Church

Pull off and stop a moment from busy busy life! Pray or just feel the peace. And rest a minute. Sign the guest register and read all great comments from others who also stopped.

Tiny Church

Tommy Jones, the church Deacon, gave me some history: The church was built in 1972. A tree fell on it during a storm and it was rebuilt. Vandals attacked the church and set it on fire. It was rebuilt. There is no lock on the door. Many (Mr Jones said, "Hundreds") of marriages have been performed here. There are six pews -- 12 people max could fit.
