The Decker Chapel, Saint Marys, Pa

Decker Chapel in Saint Marys, PA is one of the smallest churches in America, 12 feet by 18 feet.

The Decker family arrived in America from Bavaria, Germany in 1846 and settled into the area of what is now called St. Marys.

One day Micheal Decker fell from a tree while working in his orchard and hurt his back. Being the religious man that he was, he vowed that if his back would heal he would build a chapel. His back healed and he built the chapel in 1856.
