Once the dominant structure in this small mountain community, the Pine Valley Chapel is a living vestige of a bygone era.

We have toured the chapel and grounds with friends on various occasions. It's a nice place to stop on your way to or from the mountain. The history of the site is fascinating.

Wonderful place to visit. When you are there talk to the local residents to learn about the pioneers who settled Pine Valley. You will hear amazing stories of the effort and sacrifice to settle this beautiful place.

We came to Pine Valley on a weekday and took a tour of this chapel, and came back on Sunday for church services, which was fun and very crowded. We love the little town and had a picnic in the State Park both times.
