Old Union Chapel in Eastern Pennsylvania

Old Union Chapel

After 35 years of driving past this old Chapel, the new owners have allowed me to do some metal detecting. This Video includes two site visits from late 2022. I'll be going back in 2023, watch for a future video.

The Union Chapel was built in 1888 by the Philadelphia Conference of the Methodist Church. It was a function of their missionary outreach when this part of the county was pretty much just farmland and a 2 day wagon ride to Philadelphia. It was one of two similar chapels in the area they built. The other was demolished a few years ago as it had deteriorated. The Methodist church owned it until 1953 when it was purchased by a local Community Association. They owned it until 2022 when it was transferred to local Historical Society.
