In The Land of the Cross Tipped Churches there are two chapel's that I know of. One that I have already posted "The Chapel in the Woods" in Maria Stein and this one The Steineman Chapel located in St. Augustine Cemetery in Minster Ohio. Inside the chapel I found a lovely book that tells the story of a promise kept to God that made a lasting impression.
The following is quoted from the book.
While the family survived two deadly outbreaks of Cholera in town, it would not be spared from grave illness for it's matriarch, Katherina.
In the early-to-mid 1850's, John Henry's wife Katherina became very ill. Being a man of strong Catholic faith, John Henry prayed to God to spare his wife's life. John Henry promised to build something in God's honor should he answer his prayer. Shortly thereafter, Katherina recovered from her illness to the relief of John Henry.
A man of his word, John Henry began work on a small chapel in the town's cemetery. Using brick from his brick yard, he constructed a 12-foot by 18-foot building. For many years it was used for funerals during inclement weather.
This chapel as well as the other one I've blogged are worth a visit if your ever in the area. I thought it was interesting that both chapels featured an element with Purgatory. Both these chapels were built after the Cholera epidemic so that may have been an influencing factor. From a photo standpoint -- I was there at the wrong time of day. This is definitely a morning shoot. Inside it was very cramped with limited shooting angles. I had to work very hard to get the picture of Purgatory. I still ended up with some reflection.
