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.

  • Genuine history with a beautiful Tiffany stained glass window. Big window is best in afternoon, 3-5. Smaller alter window is best in the morning. on a bright day both are good at anytime. Also love the original carved gargoyles inside, there to ward off evil spirits. Do not hesitate, pay the $5pp to enjoy and receive a detailed history of the native building, built out of all local woods, with original heart pine floors.
  • Beautiful, old small church. Fantastic stained windows. It has not been updated and is thus more interesting.
