This rustic log cabin chapel was built in 1911 on the site of the original campus of the Martha Berry School for Girls (Log Cabin Campus). The building served as a place of worship for the women at the Girls' School, as well as for Sunday school and Sunday evening vesper services. Four small rooms are situated on either side of the chapel, and have been used for classrooms, music studios, the library, and a store. In later years when men and women had classes and worshipped together, Barnwell was used for summer services of the College Chapel congregation. It has been the site of many weddings and memorial services. Martha Berry lay in state in this chapel following her death in February 1942. The chapel was completely renovated in 1984-85 with Job Training Partnership Act funds for training off-campus persons to work with log structures. The chapel was air-conditioned at that time. It is unique in its architecture among log cabins, with nautical symbols incorporated in the round windows both above the entrance and the altar.

This is an overview of USA

The United States is one of the most diverse countries on earth, jam packed full of amazing sights from St. Patrick's cathedral in New York to Mount Hollywood California.The Northeast region is where it all started. Thirteen British colonies fought the American Revolution from here and won their independence in the first successful colonial rebellion in history. Take a look at these rolling hills carpeted with foliage along the Hudson river here, north of New York City.The American south is known for its polite people and slow pace of life. Probably they move slowly because it's so hot. Southerners tend not to trust people from "up north" because they talk too fast. Here's a cemetery in Georgia where you can find graves of soldiers from the Civil War.The West Coast is sort of like another country that exists to make the east coast jealous. California is full of nothing but grizzly old miners digging for gold, a few gangster rappers, and then actors. That is to say, the West Coast functions as the imagination of the US, like a weird little brother who teases everybody then gets famous for making freaky art.The central part of the country is flat farmland all the way over to the Rocky Mountains. Up in the northwest corner you can find creative people in places like Portland and Seattle, along with awesome snowboarding and good beer. Text by Steve Smith.
