Mammoth Hot Springs in Park County, Wyoming — The American West (Mountains)
A Sense of Community
The last of the structures built by the Army (1913), the chapel added a "finishing touch" to the Fort and was considered by far its most beautiful structure. In 1914, Katherine Percy Edmunds and Captain Albert Ady King of the First U.S. Cavalry were the first couple to be married here.
In the decades since, the chapel has continued to serve the community. Thoughtful design has given it a timeless slendor that complements this wilderness setting.
Chapel Interior, 1971 - Local stone - Built at a cost of $23,000
