Waterloo Wednesday

How many viewers remember this chapel? This nice postcard from Waterloo bears the Morning Star Chapel on the front. The back of the card reads, "Open to the public December 30, 1951. Built by Charles Walensky, of Waterloo, Iowa. This tiny church is 6' wide, 8' long, has 4 1-seat pews, and a 16' steeple with belfry. Now located at 2574 Logan Ave., Waterloo, Iowa 50703 Open week days after 4 p.m. All Day Saturday and Sunday" No Printer/Publisher is identified on the postcard. The chapel has since been moved to Elk Horn by the Danish Immigrant Museum.
