Oaks Pioneer Church
The history of Oaks Pioneer Church. It's both itty and bitty! I don't think that's in the history so I thought I should include it, since the tininess is a large part of this chapel's charm.

It's adorable! I love old, white, timber churches like this. We recently visited my grandmother's, which had been relocated to a history museum complex in my mother's hometown, but sadly the interior had been renovated and was really awful 1970's crud ...

it really is adorable - it reminded me when i first saw it online of a tiny church in Iowa near my hometown, the Little Brown Church in the Vale, which always seemed like a perfect and cozy place for someone to get married.

Plus it was the only semi-famous attraction in my neck of the woods growing up, because there's a song about it, The Church in the Wildwood.

There's a church in the valley by the wildwood,
No lovelier spot in the dale;
No place is so dear to my childhood,
As the little brown church in the vale.
