The Maple Street Chapel is a landmark the entire region recognizes and treasures. The American Gothic, bat-and-board design, its stained-glass "grisaille" windows, and the Chapel's simple elegance all add to its importance as an historic site.
In the late 1970's, the management, repair, maintenance, and preservation of the Maple Street Chapel was entrusted to a group that has grown into today's Maple Street Chapel Preservation Society, Inc. Through the years this group has cared for and nurtured this unique community treasure.
