This is a beautiful serene place. We visited early in the morning when no one else was there. There are benches to rest and enjoy the view. I would like to go here again in the fall or winter.

Quite unusual, easy to visit in just a few minutes, had no idea what to expect. Surprised, that is for sure. Think you will agree!

I must be a Neanderthal, but I think it's stupid. Been there lots of times, heard the story of it being built, still don't get it.

Our niece was married in the Roofless Church in June. It was the perfect venue...it may be even prettier in the fall.

A unique architectural design that has become a mecca for many weddings and ceremonies for reasons obvious when you arrive. Enjoy the surrounding meditation gardens and beautiful scenery overlooking the South Western corner of Indiana.

This was not exactly what I expected..... it was much better ! I have heard about the Phillip Johnson designed Roofless Church for years and finally at the opportunity to visit. The experience exceeded my expectations.

The roofless church is associated with the Episcopal church. I would contact the Chamber of Commerce or the Episcopal church in that area.
