Inscription. Inspired by Bishop Jackson Kemper, James Lloyd Breck and his companions founded Nashotah Mission as a center for the Episcopal Church’s work in Wisconsin Territory. Preparation of candidates for the priesthood quickly became a major task, to meet the needs of the Church on the frontier. The Blue House, built in 1842, was the community’s home. In the Red Chapel, built in 1843, prayer and Sacrament gave the strength and courage required for apostolic achievement.
 
Erected 1968 by State Historical Society of Wisconsin. (Marker Number 160.)
