We were on the way to Lexington and decided to check out where my husbands Grandparents were from. The college area is very pretty. We arrived around 4pm so everything was closed up. If you are in the area it is worth checking out.

Pamela. Sorry, I don't know that chapel, so I have to refer you to the person above and their answer to contact the college. I personally used Chapel in the Woods in TN, and could not recommend it higher. It was perfect.
