This church is so small you'll miss it if you're not careful. The gps will take you to an intersection, and the chapel will be in a pond just past that point. A quirky road trip stop that's good for a photo.

I lived in Oneida when I was growing up and since w moved in 1984, I never saw this. I saw it on Instagram and had to see it when I was back in town. What a lovely little building and unique idea!

If you want to say that you've seen it, you can drive by. You can't go in, but you can take pictures and say you've been.

Worth checking out if you’re in the area. It is very cute. I knew it was around Verona, and just happened to stumble by it. Definitely the smallest church I have seen.

A drive by to see is ok. It has been taken over by geese. You are immediately met by a bunch of hissing geese. The water is very green and stagnant.

While exploring the areas in and around Rome, my friend and I decided to find this church. We probably should not have used our gas and time for this, but I am kinda glad we saw it. Lots of Canadian Geese in the area, and...More

Very cute little church from a distance. Worth finding if you are in the area, but not for a lone trip. The church is in the middle of a small lake, so you can't see inside.

It is a little church building, surrounded by a small pond. I have heard they have had a wedding or two. It's worth a look, when you're in the area. A short visit anyway.

This was just a quick drive by. Plus there was no way to actually get into the church if I wanted to try.

What you see is what you get - a tiny church in the middle of a tiny pond in an out of the way location. Blink and it will be missed. Good for a smile and a photo "holding" the tiny church in your hand,...More
