A little difficult to find with all the turns to get there, but it is a remarkable piece of architecture. Small on the inside, it is warm and cozy and I would love to see the Christmas service in this place. A separate building houses...More

This was within walking distance of where we stayed. We actually got to attend a church service there. Great history and a beautiful place to visit.

This is a beautiful chapel in Rapid City. There is a very serene Prayer Walk nearby. It is a hidden little gem of a place and I highly recommend a visit.

This is a beautiful church in a lovely setting that has a great deal of history of why and how it was built. It is still used and I would suggest you have a docent guide to tell you all about it.

There are ramped sidewalks leading to and into the chapel, gift shop, and museum. The slopes are rather steep in some places, due to the nature of the terrain. To access the restrooms, there is one step up.
