Faith Chapel is a historic chapel on Old Plantation Road in Jekyll Island, Georgia and was built in 1904. It was used as a non-denominational chapel until 1942. The state of Georgia purchased it along with Jekyll Island in 1947. It is administered by the Jekyll Island State Park Authority and was opened to the public in 1970. It has a wood "A" frame and a brick foundation. The interior and exterior walls are shingled, with gargoyles that are replicas of the ones at Notre Dame Cathedral. The chapel was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1971 and it is open to the public.
It has stained-glass windows. One is "David's Window" which was made by Louis Comfort Tiffany; the other is "The Adoration of the Christ Child" by Maitland Armstrong and his daughter, Helen Maitland Armstrong.

  • Oh so worth the stop to walk in quietly and be amazed at the artwork of the stained glass. Be sure to research the history of the tiffany glass artwork.  more »
  • The Tiffany stained glass is really cool and highly recommended. Requires extra tickets, but visit is included with the narrated tram tour.  more »
  • Beautiful stained glass. Look for Tiffany's signature on the back window. If you like to cook, you can pick up a cookbook of local favorites.
  • Beautiful and remains non denomination. Check out grotesque gargoyles inside
