Chapel Of The Valley

Yesterday I posted two of the stained glass window from this chapel. I have featured this place before here.
The windows in the Chapel of the Valley from yesterdays post have a unique story of their own. The eight biblical windows were hand made in 1906 in Germany. This was the same year that Johnie Lee, who's dream it was to build the Chapel, was born. The windows were made for Mercy Hospital in Prescott and when the hospital burned down in 1940, the windows were miraculously spared. Henry Brooks purchased the windows and kept them in storage until he donated them for the Chapel.
