Non-Denominational Chapel Stands in Harmony with Nature


Developed by architect E. Fay Jones, The Thorncrown Chapel stands among the trees in Eureka Springs, Arkansas, and serves as a non-denominational chapel for anyone interested in getting married within the nature-inspired space. Since 1980, the majestic design has provided visitors with a unique, award-winning space for celebration.

As a result of his work as an apprentice to Frank Lloyd Wright, Jones had an equally strong eye for designing structures that stand in harmony with the environment. The Thorncrown Chapel is a 48-feet tall wooden construction with over 6,000 square feet of glass and 425 windows that allow sunlight to shine through the windows from every angle. The architecturally intriguing space has been visited by more than six million people and is described as a "woodland sanctuary," providing a peaceful place to rest and enjoy a few quiet moments of self-reflection.
