Imagine what it would be like to get married in a charming historic church surrounded by beautiful landscapes and taken away by a horse-drawn carriage. The Old Peace Chapel offers this and so much more to those wanting to tie the knot.
The Old Peace Chapel was built in New Melle in the 1800’s and was originally a general store and dance hall. At the turn of the century, the building was bought by a German Evangelical congregation and remodeled into a church. The church was brought to the Daniel Boone Site in 1983. Today, it is the centerpiece to the village. Guests not only enjoy the craftsmanship and detail of the church, but also love the sound of the pipe organ playing from the overhead balcony.
Weddings, Vow Renewals, and Baptisms are offered each day (with the exception of certain holidays) and can be held at a time suitable to your needs. The church can seat up to 100 guests comfortably and there is ample free parking.
The Old Peace Chapel is available for viewing by appointment only.
