The Boynton Chapel is a small wooden chapel
built in a late 12th-century Norwegian stave
church (Stavkirke) style. Handcrafted by
Winifred and Donald Boynton between 1939 and
1947 on the grounds of their summer residence,
the chapel is modeled after the Garmo stave
church at Maihaugen in Lillehammer, Norway. A
popular site for weddings and a favorite stop
among Door County tourists, the chapel contains
41 hand-painted frescoes and numerous
exceptionally fine carved-wood furnishings.
