Artist Sam Butcher used his Precious Moments art and characters in all of the numerous paintings and stain glass in this chapel. The cute little characters are used to bring Bible stories to life. Nancy and I went in on our own, not wanting to be tied down to a tour group, but found the tour guides so helpful, followed along to learn about the various paintings and windows.

This is a unique attraction, especially popular with Precious Moments fans and collectors (such as my oldest daughter). The grounds and gardens themselves are well worth the visit, and the chapel is inspiring. See my travelogue for additional photos.
The Precious Memories Center has a gallery that is the museum,Fountain of Angels, and the Chapel.
The Chapel has 52 Biblical murals that cover 5000 square feet.From the 30 stained glass windows to the elaborate carved doors and bronze work, the Chapel has been considered as an artistic masterpiece.
Park your car and walk around this small town square. Visit the little shops found here for antiques and gifts to bring home. Take a look at the courthouse and read about Carthage history.
