Once our initial goal of removing the decades old plant growth from around the chapel is achieved, the Foundation plans to direct its focus on developing a master plan for restoring the chapel building and its architecturally significant features such as its stained glass.
Ultimately the Foundation wants to see the chapel become an asset to the local community. At present the Belmont Chapel Foundation is exploring a variety of ways that the chapel building can serve both as a reminder of its original purpose and as a location for learning and exploration for present and future generations.
