Chapel at Beech Grove Cemetery, Bedford, Indiana

Not much is actually known about this lovely chapel. It was thought to be a WPA (Works Progress Administration) project in the 1930s, but research has been unable to confirm that it was constructed as a WPA public building project. Others have suggested it was built during World War I—again, no confirmation.

Do you know anything about the chapel? 

Please help: The museum staff would love to know the history of this chapel. If you have knowledge about its history, please contact Rowena Cross-Najafi at the museum.
