Numerous weddings are held at this lovely place. Our son and his wife had theirs here years ago. The view is awe inspiring! Open air chapel so it is somewhat open to the elements.

The official name is Fred W. Symmes Chapel but everyone calls it "Pretty Place." The name speaks for itself. People get married here. The view of the valley below is amazing. I think it is part of a YMCA camp and it's easily accessible by car. Breathtaking and secluded.
