The Stone’s Chapel Memorial Association, Inc. will be hosting the first annual Stone’s Chapel Homecoming on Saturday, October 15, 2011.   All former members of Stone’s Chapel Presbyterian Church, family members, friends and neighbors are cordially invited to this free event.  Stone’s Chapel is located at 4138 Crum’s Church Road, near the intersection with Summit Point Road in northern Clarke County, Virginia.

The Homecoming will begin with a short worship service inside the chapel at 11:00 a.m.   At the conclusion of the worship service, representatives from the Shenandoah Presbytery of the Presbyterian Church USA will make a ceremonial presentation of the deed to the church building and the adjacent cemetery to the Stone’s Chapel Memorial Association, Inc.   A potluck luncheon will follow the presentation. The Memorial Association will provide hamburgers and hot dogs; guests are requested to bring a side dish or dessert to share.  During the luncheon, members of the Memorial Association will give tours of the chapel and its cemetery, highlighting the recent repair work and the Association’s plans for the property.

Stone’s Chapel was built in 1848, although the present brick building replaced an earlier log structure.   The Stone’s Chapel Presbyterian Church was organized as a separate church by the Winchester Presbytery in 1886 and was an active church until its closure in 2000.   Stone’s Chapel Memorial Association, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization formed earlier this year to preserve and maintain the chapel and its cemetery.   For more information, please visit  www.stoneschapel.org.
