About The Old Peace Chapel

Imagine what it would be like to have your wedding ceremony in a charming historic church surrounded by beautiful landscapes, and then be whisked away by a horse-drawn carriage. The Old Peace Chapel offers this and much more to those wanting to wed in a unique setting. The Old Peace Chapel was built in New Melle in the 1800s and originally was a general store and dance hall. At the turn of the century, the building was purchased by a German Evangelical congregation and remodeled into a church. The church was moved to the Daniel Boone site in 1983. Today, it is the centerpiece of the village. Guests not only enjoy the craftsmanship and detail of the church, but also the sound of the pipe organ playing from the overhead balcony. Weddings, vow renewals and baptisms are offered each day (with the exception of certain holidays) and can be held at a time suitable to your needs. The church can seat up to 100 guests comfortably and there is ample, free parking.
