Here is a close up view of the Chapel that I showed you in yesterdays post. I posted this Chapel back in February of 2009 but I think it is worth another look. This history is from that previous post.
A dream of Johnie Lee Fain and her daughter Carolyn “Sue” Fain, was to build a chapel nestled in the lap of nature. In 2000 that dream was realized but not until a year after she had passed away. The sanctuary was built with money donated by Johnie's daughter Sue, as a final tribute to her Mother's vision. The chapel was completed in 2000. Sue Fain passed away in 2001 leaving this truly extraordinary gift. The Chapel sits on a hill overlooking Fain Park, which includes a peaceful lake, waterfalls, and a lush green picnic area shaded by trees. The land for the 100 acre park was donated to the town of Prescott Valley by the Fain family. The Chapel of the Valley is open to the public every Saturday and Sunday, and is also available for weddings, memorial services and other appropriate events.
