Blanchard Chapel

History

Blanchard Chapel - est. 1911

 

Blanchard Chapel is located just off beautiful Chuckanut Drive in Blanchard, Washington. Blanchard was a milltown founded in 1887 and is now a tiny, quiet community in northwest Skagit County. The Chapel was built in 1911, and was an active Methodist country church until 2001.

At that time, Blanchard Chapel was purchased by Lynn Lennox, whose family has resided in Blanchard since the turn of the century. Lynn's great-great-grandparents originally donated the property to build the Blanchard Chapel, and her grandparents were the first couple married there. Blanchard Chapel continued as a wedding chapel until 2019, and has now become a private residence.
