Most of my previous posts have featured a headstone. Today I'm showing you the chapel located on the grounds of Sterling Community Cemetery. This cemetery offers an afternoon of discovery with its victorian headstones, family mausoleums, box/chest tombs and other beautiful monuments - all located here in South Central Kansas - a somewhat rural area.
The chapel was completed in 1935 using stone and cement blocks from cemetery lot curbing, along with other materials donated by Sterling Township & City. There is a military section, baby area and Potter's Field. Next to the chapel is a cemetery map and directory. The directory is located within the wooden box. Both sides have a lot map.
It was a wonderful place to escape the heat and sit quietly.
