Olive Chapel

This little gem sits on a corner.  It's always well cared for and lovely.  

The congregation has been a might force for Good since before 1853.
This church house property was purchased in 1923.

Olive Chapel North-ish side

The property sits tight on a corner, with a curve road on it's North-ish side designed for traffic to by-pass the trains.

Front

There's a small home tucked towards the back, perhaps where pastor lives.
I've seen young people tending the grounds - which look charming all year.
Trying to show the front is a challenge.  So, I opted to tilt the camera and fit it in the frame.
