Alton Chapel Anniversary

The beautiful little church in Alton, now St. Thomas Episcopal Church, has a history dating back to the 1870’s.  A Chapel Society was formed in 1878, and in 1936 a special 58th anniversary service was held at the chapel.  Why the service was held in the 58th year rather than the typical 50th year is unknown.  Shown is a mimeographed copy of the original program of the service.
