You Won’t Find Another Chapel Anywhere In The World Like This One In Mississippi

Tucked away in the woods near Natchez sits a beautiful Gothic-style church known as St. Mary’s Chapel. Now almost hidden, the church was at one time a part of the Laurel Hill plantation. Sometime in the 1960s, the plantation’s main home burned down, leaving behind one of the most unique churches in the state.

Although regular services have long been ceased at St. Mary’s Chapel, it was never deconsecrated, making it a popular wedding venue. Natchez’s St. Mary Basilica has done an excellent job of keeping records on the church. For more information, click here.
