This is a very beautiful college campus. They have about 1600 students and a number of classic buildings. There is a large artist colony here, as well. Don’t forget about the Historic Boone restaurant. It is wonderful.

We were in Berea for a few days last month. The college is inspiring. It was founded by radical abolitionists. It charges no tuition because it seeks to educate poor people who are high achievers. It continues to promote racial justice. I highly recommend taking...More

First time back on campus in almost 30 years. Still as beautiful as I remember. Sustaining commitment to interracial education in the Appalachian region since 1855. Great place to visit for crafts

Pamela. Sorry, I don't know that chapel, so I have to refer you to the person above and their answer to contact the college. I personally used Chapel in the Woods in TN, and could not recommend it higher. It was perfect.
