Once the dominant structure in this small mountain community, the Pine Valley Chapel is a living vestige of a bygone era.

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.
