Chapel

images/things-to-do/chapel.jpg

The Chapel was built in 1973 by Delbert Hallenbeck and Sons. It was the idea of Stuart Rombaugh, former secretary-manager and past president of the Altamont Fair, to fill the religious needs of the many traveling people and carnival workers.

The exterior of the chapel was modeled after the Reformed Church of Glenville which burned in 1964. The contractor installed windows which were authentically styled for the time period having six over six panes. The tall narrow windows were custom scaled to fit the size of the building. Almost all of the furnishings in the chapel were donated by individuals and churches of different denominations. In 2001, 84 Lumber Company provided the chapel with a new front door. 

Services are held in the Chapel daily at 11 a.m. during fair week. Clergy people from different denominations conduct the services. Many afternoon inspriational music cam be enjoyed. 

All are welcome!
