Belvidere Cemetery - Frank Lloyd Wright Pettit Chapel

Yesterday I posted photographs of Mari and Ole Finnestad's great grandson, Burdette Finnestad and wife Alice (Barnes) who were buried at the Belvidere Cemetery in Boone county, Illinois.    Just a few yards to the east of their burial plot is a chapel, designed by Frank Lloyd Wright called the Pettit Chapel.

Here is a photo of the signage for the chapel.























Here are photos of each side of the chapel.





















The chapel was built in 1906 as a memorial to Dr. William Pettit by his wife, Emma.    The Pettit Chapel was just one of a couple of chapels designed by Frank Lloyd Wright during his career.
