Church at Grand Tetons Wyoming [1950s]

From our collection of old postcards ...


"The Chapel of the Transfiguration is a small log chapel in Grand Teton National Park, in the community of Moose. The chapel was sited and built to frame a view of the Cathedral Group of peaks in a large window behind the altar. The chapel, which was built in 1925, is owned and operated by St. John's Episcopal Church in Jackson." --- Wikipedia

We think this one qualifies for Good Fences.  Thanks, Tex, for hosting.



Have you visited the Grand Teton National Park?

Thank you for stopping by John's Island.

  8. Such a beautiful chapel with that gorgeous background! And don't you just have to love a place called Moose?
    Yes, I have visited the Grand Tetons, camped there with my family and saw many beavers and moose. A majestic place - and so is its big neighbor, Yellowstone (one of my favorite places in the US if not the world. I enjoy watching wildlife and there is lots of it).

  9. I had a big smile when I saw this one. Not only a lovely postcard with its interesting history but we've actually been there twice. I loved it the first time so much that when we found ourselves in the area again we went back. It's a beautiful little chapel in the most magnificent surroundings. We intend to go back one day because we love that area. Thanks so much for the memories John and have a great weekend.

  24. Love this little historic church! You never see log churches, and this is so typical of the west, being in Wyoming. Love it!

  25. I was high school age and visited that church sometime in the late fifties on a camping trip..... Amazing. :)

  26. That is such a pretty building and, with the mountains in the background, breathtaking!

    I have not been there. I'd love to go someday!

    It is so encouraging to see an Old West church. Times were different then, but the Lord remains the same throughout.

    Peace and joy to you...

    :-)
