McInnes Creek Chapel in Northwestern Ontario Canada, a quaint little Church nestled in the pines.

McInnes Creek Chapel is approx 6 miles away from Harris Hill Resort. It still holds several events and activities every year. Hymn Sing and Supper at Christmas time; a “fall supper” or a fish fry.  There is still the occasional wedding or funeral held here. 

Emma Sandmoen donated about 140 acres in 1944. The Church was built around 1939, and provided services as a Grace Lutheran Church until the 1950’s. For a few years after that, a Youth Minister would come to do services in the summer. As the area’s population continued to dwindle, that only lasted a few years also.  The local people decided to restore and do the upkeep on the church and grounds, and named it McInnes Creek CHAPEL, instead of Church. It then changed from a Lutheran Church to a non-denominational Chapel.
