Ironwork on the door
While on Washington Island, I toured the Stavkirke chapel.
Unique Stavkirke chapel
It was constructed in the 1990s following plans from Norwegian chapels built in Medieval times.

I LOVED my time on Washington Island at the tip of the Door Peninsula in Wisconsin.
This is a special place, and the Stavkirke is a unique chapel on Washington Island.
It is a monument to the Scandinavian heritage of a large number of the inhabitants of Washington Island.
