Once the dominant structure in this small mountain community, the Pine Valley Chapel is a living vestige of a bygone era. They say its builders believed that the Great Flood was coming back, and so built the pretty little wooden chapel high above the ground so it could float to safety (presumably with the town's residents inside).

The chapel is apparently closed during winter (at least when we went, on Saturday) but this is not listed on their website as far as I can see.

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.

The chapel was built by a ship builder who incorporated his skills in the design of the chapel. It is worth the scenic drive to see this part of Western History.
