"Robb Chapel" This chapel was built in the early 1900's, in memory of the young daughter of a well thought of pioneer and homesteading family in our neighborhood. Services were held here until the mid 1930's. Because of its secluded rural location, vandalism eventually caused the family to brick the chapel shut. It is a beautiful, peaceful location. To the immediate left of the tree line a steep hill drops into a river bottom farming valley and the location of the Robb original homestead and other old homesteads, as well.
Thanks for looking in.

Great little chapel taken from a good angle that shows nice depth and detail. It is a shame that people in a country like ours have to vandalize landmarks and historic buildings. Your lighting and colors are great with excellent sharpness and DOF.
