Constructed in 1989, the Marty Leonard Community Chapel was dedicated to serving the youth and families of Lena Hope, a place for children and families during the depression and post-war years, in an uplifting environment. It was named after Marty Leonard because of her contributions to Lena Pope as an advocate and supporter. She has been consistently involved in the executive committee. Her friends and family surprised her with the chapel on her 50th birthday — it had been her dream for years. Now, the chapel is also a place for weddings, vow renewals and church services, acting as a reflection of the positive impact Marty Leonard had on Lena Hope.

We loved our wedding at the Marty Leonard Chapel!
We had a truly wonderful experience with the Marty Leonard Chapel! The facility is beautiful! The architecture allows natural light to flood into the Chapel, the finishes are impressive, and the overall space comfortably accommodates 180-200 people. We loved all the unique areas in the Marty Leonard - the varies entry points, the gardens and fountains leading to the Chapel, the feeling of seclusion created by old trees, and sneaking a peek from the balcony before our wedding.Sent on 10/31/2019
The Marty Leonard staff works hard to accommodate everyone. As gay men and members of the LGBT community, we were a little nervous contacting venues, but the staff at the Marty Leonard was kind, inclusive, and friendly. We could not have asked for a better experience. Katherine and Charles were lovely every time we visited, called, or emailed. We highly recommend this venue for a distinctive yet traditional wedding experience in a chapel that is both unique and beautifully designed.
