The Seelyville Chapel

John T. Ball, a Presbyterian elder from Honesdale, organized a Sunday School on January 1, 1871, in the old Seelyville School House. One of the early members responsible for the success of the Sunday School was a black man, Theodore Green. In 1900, a building lot was purchased for $340.00, and by October 17, 1902, the Chapel was dedicated. A bell was added in 1904 and first rung on Christmas Eve of that year.[br] [br] [br] [br] [br] [br]

From 1993 through 2008 the Honesdale National Bank published an annual wall calendar, each featured 13 historic sites. The sites were chosen and researched by a committee of the historical society and artwork was commissioned to Judy Hunt and William Amptman by the bank.

This page was one month of the calendar and was made possible through the Wayne County Commissioners and a Tourism Promotion Committee’s Tourism Grant.
