Just visited here for the first time for a funeral service. It's truly beautiful, with wonderful stained glass over 100 years old. The wood vestry and other parts of the chapel are lovely too.

Stayed across the street at the Magnolia hotel at a conference. Walked on the grounds and went into the open small chapel. Beautiful grounds and chapel had ornate altar and woodwork. Peaceful place to stop and pray. Worth a visit!
