Barnwell Chapel

It’s hard to find another college with so many chapels on campus. Barnwell Chapel is the oldest of Berry College’s 3 chapels, built in 1911.


The sprinkles started as we drove through the streets of Rome looking for the entrance to Berry College.  The weather didn’t seem to like my idea of doing a photo shoot this weekend but, we marshalled on anyway.  We found the campus which was looking pretty empty since the students were largely off for summer break.

After driving aimlessly for a little while, (I was kicking myself for not picking up a map at the welcome center) we saw a circle of log-cabin style structures .  Looking like an interesting spot, we pulled in and hoped the rain would pass us by.  Fortunately, we didn’t have to wait long as the skies began to clear and I got out to look around.

The Barnwell Chapel, is the oldest of 3 chapel on the campus of Berry College.  The building has seen a couple of renovations since its original dedication in 1911 is in nice shape for being 105 years old.  Originally used as both classroom space and church, the building is still used for Weddings, Sunday services, and special events.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
