A Sense of Community

 

Fort Yellowstone was truly a community as well as a military outpost. The small village frequently assembled to welcome new 

residents or bid farewell to departing neighbors. The joys of births, christenings, and marriages mingled with the sorrows of 

illnesses, accidents and deaths. Religious services were held in the troop mess hall, the post exchange, or in a private residence 

until the chapel was built.

 

The last of the structures built by the Army (1913), the chapel added a "finishing touch" to the fort and was considered by far its 

most beautiful structure. In 1914, Katharine Piercy Edmunds and Captain Albert Ady King of the First U.S. Cavalry were the 

first couple to be married here.

 

In the decades since, the chapel has continued to serve the community. Thoughtful design has given it a timeless splendor that 

complements its wilderness setting.
