Nice peaceful spot

In a quiet area away from the main city noise sit this little gem of history. Amazed with the craftsmanship of the church and wished we had time to take in a service.

A very unique construction - worth a look around. The ladies at the gift shop were a little pushy in asking us to sign the guest book - we hadn't even been up to the church yet.

My husband and I were married here last year. The staff was accommodating and very helpful. We chose to get married outside, behind the chapel. They set up and took down chairs, the altar, and even coordinated the pastor for us. The small cabin was available for our use before and after the ceremony. The pictures were beautiful and the...

Saw this listed in local information. With the road construction in Rapid City, it was a little slow getting to the location but oh so worth it. The lady in the gift shop was delightful. Told us interesting facts about the buildings. There was still services at the chapel weekly. There is also a pray trail located behind the chapel.... More

Very impressive. The church/chapel was built in authentic Nordic fashion (No nails or bolts.) The grounds are beautiful. As a matter of fact a wedding was just finishing up as we left.

The chapel was a nice attraction, but its located in a subdivisions so loses a bit of awesome and serenity. The woodwork is amazing and inside quite impressive, but not sure I would go out of my way to visit. Bit of a steeper walk for elderly folks who were behind me. I think a great visit for those who...

Very serene and inspiring. Worth the trip! There is also a small cabin that shows the history of the Norwegian settlers that came to the area.

The Chapel is a bit outside of downtown through a neighborhood. The chapel itself is beautiful and interesting (it's also pretty small). Be sure to walk all the way around the chapel to see all of the details. The meditation walk is a short in and back into the woods; not very special in my opinion. The parking lot had... More
