  • Neat place to visit and is neat, that the Little Brown Church in the Vale (a.k.a Church in the wild wood) song is based on. A lot of history and is very pretty in all weathers. Would go visit again.  more »

  • We enjoyed our visit to the Church very much. The interior was breathtaking. I grew up many, many years ago singing the song "Little Brown Church in the Vale" in school in Maine! We toured the grounds and was greeted by a very friendly man who works on the property and he gave us some of the history and was very informative. I'd go back!
  • Good job of capturing the history. Free or donation. Great gardens. Well kept building and grounds.
  • I would like to relate a story about 'The Little Brown Church in the Vale" When I was in grade school (1940's) I remember singing this song. and then the years went by and I was in high school in Southern Illinois and was a member of the "Sea Scouts"(Boy Scouts but wore Naval Uniforms) On Saturday afternoon before Easter Sunday we would load up and go to Alto Pass, Illinois where "Bald Knob" is located (highest point in Southern Illinois and in the Foothills of the Ozark Mountains) and it was our job to direct traffic to line up the automobiles. Starting about three AM people would start arriving and as far as you could see was headlights coming around and around the hills ( which was an awesome sight in its self) and if it was a clear and pretty day when the Sun came up,it looked like you cold reach out and touch the Sun. This one year there was a group (bus load) of people that came from "The Little Brown Church in the Vale" and after the services they visited with us, even invited us to come and visit. What I want to convey is what an impact your church had on a small group of boys About sixty years has passed since this occurred. Thanks for the memories. Larry
