There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In Arkansas
Sister to Thorncrown Chapel in Eureka Springs, which we covered previously, Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel is just about perfect. It is located in the lovely town of Bella Vista, and is a memorial to its namesake, who was deeply spiritual and had a great love for nature. Built in 1988, it was designed by E. Fay Jones, a protégé of Frank Lloyd Wright.
