The ‘Precious Moments Complex’ Is Second To None



Our first visit to this incredible place in the early 90’s is deeply etched into our memory. We discovered it by accident, but it has become one of our most 'moving' stops during our 22 years of Fulltime travels. The complex has expanded since our impressive first visit – now it even includes Cubby Bear's Campground.

Artist, Samuael J Butcher was inspired by Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel in Rome. He designed, created and constructed the Precious Moments Chapel as his way of sharing the joy of his faith with the world; it has become his crowning work. If memory serves me well this picture includes many real life physically challenged children that visited the Chapel during the early days.



The Chapel is so much more than just a building, it has touched the lives of those who enter its doors with a sense of peace, hope, and promise since it opened in 1989.

Peruse the website for a moving experience and if your travels take you near Carthage, Missouri, be sure to explore this one of a kind stopping spot.
