CHAPEL IN THE HILLS
Rapid City is home to the beautiful Stavkirke, or better known as the "Chapel in the Hills." The Stavkirke is an exact, full-size replica of Norway's 850 year-old Borgund Church. It is all wood and held together by pegs. Carvings include dragons and apostle heads. The Stavkirke sits in an alpine, park-like setting on Rapid City's west side. Follow Chapel Lane off Jackson Boulevard (Highway 44). You'll pass through a pleasant residential neighborhood, feeling like you must have missed a turn, and suddenly the Stavkirke spire comes into view.
