The April Where is This photo taken by Pat Hill of Rutherfordton features the Glass Chapel, located on Maple Creek Road in the Woodwind Farms area of Rutherfordton. Many readers were married at the chapel, also known as the Chapel on the Hill and the Crystal Cathedral. Reader Tom Bernard reported that Rev. Faulton Hodge built the chapel to be used for weddings and special ceremonies. The windows came from the old Pennsylvania Hotel in West Palm Beach, Fla., when it was demolished in the 1990s. Peter Wild added that Rev. Hodge was also responsible for the frescoes found at the Glendale Springs Episcopal Church in Ashe County. The winning entry chosen at random from all the correct submissions came from Sheila Hooper of Rutherfordton, a Rutherford EMC member.
