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.
