The land for the Palmer Chapel Methodist Church located in the Cataloochee Valley was deeded by Mary Ann Palmer in 1898. The building was started and completed in the same year.

Preachers for the church were supplied by the Western North Carolina Conference of the Methodist Episcopal Church. Most of them were circuit riders who visited about one Sunday each month.

This is taken from the old road bed that actually used to come around and past the front of the building.

  1. This is another couple of lovely shots from Cataloochee Valley, and the light is even more beautiful here than in the previous post. I think the texture in the last picture adds a sense of history and time gone by. I like the way you processed this picture.

  2. I really dig the lead image. Very well executed. The trees are really light and stand out without being electric and the house is well placed and processed.

  3. This is very interesting to me. Northern Idaho is littered with little chapels that look just like this. I suspect that the people who migrated to the pacific northwest brought a lot of their influence with them.

    1. Thanks Scott! I’m sure that you’re right. Anytime you have that many people migrating to or through an area they are going to influence it to a degree.
