Our Wedding Chapel
Originally Built in 1925, it was organized during tent meetings in the Augusta Public Square by the Nazarene Church. For three decades, the chapel was a gathering place in Augusta for worship, fellowships, weddings, baptisms and ice cream socials.
During the Great Flood of 1937, the river topped the roof of the chapel but not before the pressure of the river water inside cause the pews inside the church to bust through the roof. All but three were recovered and one remains on display with the original pulpit of the church.
In 1944, the Nazarene Church decommissioned the church when they built a larger church on Fourth Street in Augusta which supplied them with large fellowship hall. For the 70 years, the little church by the river served for a few small venues, but mostly it was vacant. In 1986, the chapel was used in the production of The Adventures of Huck Finn.
Today, our Chapel has all the romantic country charm that any bride and groom could hope to find. It is located by the lovely Ohio River and is the only church in Augusta, Kentucky with a river view.
