The Chapel In Montana That’s Located In The Most Unforgettable Setting
Montana is far from lacking scenic settings and
beautiful churches that will leave you speechless. But there’s one incredible chapel out in Big Sky that we’ve yet to talk about and has one of the most unforgettable settings you’ll ever lay your eyes on. Prepare yourselves, Soldiers Chapel is about to steal your breath away.
Set back from everything right off of
Gallatin Road, Soldiers Chapel was built back in 1955.
From the road you'll see the sign pointing to where you need to go, with your eye immediately being lead to the stunning backdrop of Lone Mountain.
Drive up to Soldiers Chapel and you'll see the only stained glass window right on the front of the building.
Take a step inside and you'll see that there are no pictures hanging on the walls, the only view you'll need can be found right out of the large picture window.
The perfect setting for any romantic ceremony, the picture window that you'll stand before gives you a framed picturesque view of Lone Mountain.
Dedicated to the fallen members of the 163rd Infantry Regiment that was sent to New Guinea in 1942, you'll find beautiful markers on the property behind the chapel.
More specifically dedicated in honor of the Nelson Story family, the soldiers were sent to New Guinea during World War II. In an even more sad turn of events, all of the soldiers would eventually die from diseases and wounds that went untreated. Today, the chapel serves as a beautiful place to honor our fallen soldiers, a favorite location for our residents to visit during holidays like Veterans Day.
From May through September, the chapel holds 11AM services on Sundays.
