As a 10th wedding anniversary present to his wife, this chapel has much more meaning than just a celebration of love. It is a place to feel closer to those we've lost that are now in heaven. A place to receive comfort from God. Even a place to share a personal love story.
The chapel was designed by the property owners wife, with a pioneer, country charm of the past. It strongly resembles the white churches from the Midwest prairies on a little scale. These churches were built over a century ago by Scandinavian, Germanic & Celtic settlers.
These beautiful churches are sadly being torn down across America. They were so very important to these immigrants. These white country wooden chapels had tall steeples, letting the tired & hungry travelers know, there was finally a town ahead. They held town meetings, church services & school children. They are an important part of American history! Angels of the Prairie is a way to honor the settlers and the sacrifices they made for us! They truly loved their pioneer churches.
Small homestead churches are also commonly found in Iceland, and other parts of the world, where it was common to have a private church on your land many centuries ago!
Angels of the Prairie is filled with rich history throughout its little walls.
The charming historic chapel creates a "fairytale" experience, with some of the best photo-op's in the Midwest!
Walk through the 8 foot tall, 250 pound exotic cherry door, that has a resemblance of the stavkirke churches of Norway! Even the hardware was imported from Europe and hand forged of a Fjord horse! Lastly, there is a real working bell in the tower that can be rung! No details were overlooked in this Scandinavian Chapel!
