St. Olaf's Lutheran Chapel, 1953, in Eagle Bay, NY on the South Shore Rd between Inlet and Old Forge. (Photo 9/24/10)
This chapel is not listed in "Adirondack Churches" and I haven't found much on the internet about it.
Scandinavian in look with brushed vertical siding and simple carved detail on the porch posts. A sign indicates the rest room around back which is an outhouse. To the left of the front porch is a 9 or 10 foot cross standing over a pile of stones overgrown with ferns. Obvious in the pile of stones is a large white chunk of coral. If in fact this is a grave I would be very interested in knowing the story of the person buried there.Perhaps some Norwegian seaman. But how did he get there? Something I'll have to follow up on.
