Bark Chapel

Bark chapels were built until a more permanent structure could be built. The Jesuit priests would use these structures as a place of worship as well as for their dwelling. Original structures were constructed of sapling framework with elm bark. The Bark Chapel at Heritage Hill is a replica. Our bark chapel is covered with cedar bark. The architecture of the building reflects the Iroquois long house structure.
