The Chapel on the Hill has a new interpretive sign for designation to the Southeast Tennessee Heritage Religious Trail. The sign arrived in October 2007 and was paid for in part by the Southeast Tennessee Tourism Association and the South Pittsburg Historic Preservation Society. Located at the corner of Elm Avenue and Eighth Street, the sign will be set to the right of the historic structure.
South Pittsburg Historic Preservation Society chairman, Bob Hookey, holds the new Chapel on the Hill interpretive sign in position for this photo. The Chapel was designated to the Southeast Tennessee Heritage Religious Trail, which has been developed over the last couple of years. Also included on the trail locally was the Christ Church Episcopal located the corner of Third Street and Holly Avenue, Holly Avenue United Methodist Church at 415 Holly Avenue and Our Lady of Lourdes Catholic Church at 700 Holly Avenue. Others locally included are the Virgin of the Poor Shrine (Catholic) in New Hope, Tennessee and Saint John the Baptist Church located on Ladd's Cove Road near Martin Springs, Tennessee.

The Chapel on the Hill sign, pictured above, was installed Sunday afternoon, December 2, 2007 by Society historian, Dennis Lambert. Bob Hookey, chairman of the South Pittsburg (Tennessee) Historic Preservation Society, assisted with the pouring of the concrete the Wednesday before. Some stone furnished by Carolyn Millhiser, Society's secretary, was used to dress up the concrete. Photos above made December 2, 2007.
Along with the Chapel on the Hill, the Christ Church Episcopal at Third Street and Elm Avenue in South Pittsburg was also designated to the Southeast Tennessee Heritage Religious Trail. The photos above, taken by Dennis Lambert on December 2, 2007, shows the church and position of the sign, which was placed a few days before, and a close up of that sign.
