Faith chaple church 1904

By Dinky65
This small wooden church was built for interdenominational worship by the wealthy and powerful members of the Jekyll Island Club. The structure is that of an early colonial meetinghouse with decorative elements derived from the Gothic style with gargoyles and rich stained wood. The stained glass was made and one window signed by Louis Comfort Tiffany himself reportedly one of the only five pieces known to exist.

Jekyll Island is a small barrier island on the southeast coast of Geogia.
It was purchased in 1886 by a group of wealthy industrilists including:J.P. Morgan,william K.Vanderbilt, William Rockefeller, and Marshall Fields and developed into the Jekyll Island Club, a private winter retreat where members built cottages the size of mansions.

I hope everyone is enjoying the series of these homes and information about Jekyll Island. There will be one final house tomorrow it is the biggest of all the cottages so don't miss it. Thank you all for your V/C your comments mean alot to me. I have learned alot from this post of houses. Thank you all. Have a wonderful day!SmileWink

Very difficult to get a clean shot here Brenda, loads of objects in the way, but composition and exposure good.

A well chosen position, you had a challenge with those trees - well captured. Again a little compensation on the exposure would have helped you with the bright light.
