There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In New York

Our state is known for some pretty remarkable achievements, but did you know that New York is supposedly home to the world’s smallest church? A roughly ten minute drive just off the thruway will bring you to Mason Road in Oneida, where you’ll be able to view this tiny white church set up in the middle of a pond! Accessible by rowboat, Cross Island Chapel is like nothing you’ve ever seen.

We’re aware that these uncertain times are limiting many aspects of life as we all practice social and physical distancing. While we’re continuing to feature destinations that make our state wonderful, we don’t expect or encourage you to go check them out immediately. We believe that supporting local attractions is important now more than ever and we hope our articles inspire your future adventures!
