The Chapel on the Hill was originally named the Wayside Chapel. Retired minister Morgan C. Webb built it with his own bare hands in 1954 and opened it to the public in 1955; that was when Sunset magazine took note and called it a "gift to travelers." The chapel was further featured in Sunset magazine's December 1955 issue. The chapel was open every day and made available to those who sought a place for meditation and prayer. The Wayside Chapel was non-denominational. All who came to visit the chapel were taken in with open arms by the Minister and his wife.  Throughout its existence, the chapel saw a large number of weddings. Minister Webb accepted each couple with an extreme amount of care. There are stories told that Minister Webb offered his counseling to ensure that all couples were well prepared for their new life ahead.  Minister Webb and his lovely wife lived in a house located next to the chapel. This house is now available as our beautiful bridal suite.
