The Little Chapel in the Woods was dedicated by former First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt shortly after holding their first wedding ceremony. It was designed by architect O’Neil Ford and built as a project for the National Youth Administration during the depression. Young women artists have put their stamp on countless features in the chapel. Its symbolism portrays “Women Ministering to Human Needs” on saw-pierced and riveted brass lighting and beech woodwork.
