The trees surrounding the chapel prove to be less enduring than the building itself. At different times the trees framing the chapel have been stately white pines; at other times magnificent white birches.

This picture dates to about 1970 when birches were ruling the landscape.

Also in the forground is the old boardwalk that led worshippers from the highway to the chapel entrance. The driveway and parking areas were not yet established.
