Across the footbridge, you'll find Roberts’ Chapel, named for the two men who donated the logs (Butch Roberts) and the stained glass windows (John Roberts). Rest here for a bit, looking out at the scenic natural view. Before you leave check out the date carved into a log at the right of the large window - 1858, Nov. This building is believed to be the oldest on the Homestead. The beautiful stained glass is from the old Holy Angels convent in Jonesoro, built in 1898. It was torn down in the 20s and these windows were saved.
Originally a two room house, this building has an interesting story. A woman was living there by herself while her men-folk were away in the Civil War. Yankees came through and took her only means of transportation, a little mare. She vigorously protested such action, to no avail. But she won in the end - in the middle of the night awoken by a commotion, she went outside to find that her mare had escaped and come back home!
