    I wonder if the large arch in the back wall once held a window?

      I was thinking that would be a nice place for a window, but then again it would depend on what the window was looking out on to. Maybe French doors onto a deck (if the little structure out back could be moved) with windows above.
      Don’t know if there had been a window there, but when you look at the arch from the outside it goes all the way to the ground.

      NOT sure what denomination it was, but many Catholic and Episcopalian (Anglican) churches have what is called a “rose window” behind the altar/sanctuary area with an elaborate stained glass design featuring panels arranged like petals of a flower. Google “rose window” and you will see some examples. The arched area that is walled in here looks like it could have had a rose window at one time, or one was intended to be installed.

        It more than likely once had a beautiful window. Looks like if you put one back in you would have a wonderful view of the building behind (Picture #1). It is a Great church building!

      I would say it is simply a way to relieve the large blank wall that needed to be solid inside the sanctuary. When looking at the side of the structure you can easily see the sides have the same blind arches with two single windows inside each arch.

    Would make a spectacular home! The peek inside did not disappoint.
    So much light from the windows-It would be a heavenly home…
    I was wondering which denomination this church was too.

    Love the exterior. Too bad if there was a big window that was removed. You can never have too much natural light! Especially through multi-colored stained glass. Could have been kaleidoscopic.

    Very well maintained beautiful building, always sad to see churches close down.

    This chapel was featured in an episode of Brett Michaels’ Rock of Love dating game show about 10 years ago.

    Would that have been a George Barber house as a neighbor to the right of the church? (street view)
