What They Are about
Set on a hillside overlooking Lake Hamilton, the majestic Anthony Chapel is a serene haven nestled among the dense pines and hardwoods of Garvan Woodland Gardens. An elegant blend of native wood, glass, and stone, the 160-seat chapel boasts a soaring vaulted glass ceiling surrounded by floor-to-ceiling windows, amassing more than 9,860 square feet of glass that reveals the woodland canopy and sky above and surrounds visitors with breathtaking views of Lake Hamilton and the surrounding forest.
The impressive 57-foot-high Anthony Chapel ceiling is supported by an intricate cross-beam system and massive yellow-pine columns. Floor-to-ceiling windows provide an ever-changing dance of sunlight and shadows on the native flagstone floors. At night, handmade wall sconces project a golden glow that softly illuminates the interior, contrasting with the darkness of the surrounding forest.
