A stavkirke chapel on Washington Island, Wisconsin was lovingly built in the past half century by local residents who wanted to preserve and celebrate the Scandinavian heritage there.
I rode bikes around the island last weekend. This was the first time visiting the stavkirk chapel.
Inside there are faux painted marble pillars. There are also carved panels and altar.
There is a hand carved schooner hanging from the rafters in reference to the island community and heritage.
