The place has not changed and is very quaint and great place to have a small intimate wedding. This is a Norwegian Stave Church with rich history.
Decided to go here at the last minute the night before we were to leave Rapid City. This is a great place to stop -- the grounds are beautiful and the people who were there to answer questions were delightful! Since my mother is full-blooded Norwegian, it was even more interesting for me :) It is free, however, donations are... 更多
A great little find, very cute and a neat place to take a bit of a walk around. There was a wedding going on when we stopped so we did not venture into the chapel or the walking areas around but looked at all the other areas. The area is well maintained and the gardens are pretty.

The setting is perfect, the architecture spectacular, the staff informative and friendly, the atmosphere moving. My husband was not very interested in seeing this chapel, but once there he was fascinated by the architecture and... 更多
What a surprise to find such a lovely place at the end of the road in this residential area! Beautiful wooden Church surrounded by nice landscaping and included a Prayer Path that truly made you reflect. We stayed about a mile away and enjoyed the sound of the Church bell several times daily which was wonderful. There is a gift... 更多
