An intimate setting, perfect in every detail.
Hopewell Chapel is located on the main street of INOLA. It seats up to 90 in the quaint and elegant classic Colonial layout. Walk down the aisle in this historic church while the two 1854 brass bells in the chapel’s tower ring out your entrance. Family and friends will watch from pews wrought from antique heart of pine wood. Light streams in through the arched side windows, while the round window over the altar sets off the bridal couple.
Merchants Hope Church, located in Prince George County, Virginia, is the model for this chapel. Among the oldest Protestant churches in America, it was built in 1744. The first owner of the INOLA property had this sparkling gem built this near copy replica taking care to have all the details built in a manner consistent with Colonial architecture. Even the windowpanes are hand blown glass. The chapel has Flemish brick-bond brickwork, medallion cornices, and a graceful gable roof. The bell tower contains two antique bells weighing 225 and 125 pounds. Colonial architecture is rare in Georgia and unknown in the mountains.
The chapel is surrounded by a dense forest creating a beautiful setting.
