It’s been over 50 years since a ski-in, ski-out Richard H. Bell
Interfaith Chapel was constructed on Sugarloaf Mountain and local
businessman Richard Bell led the way. Thirty years ago, in 1988, his
daughter, Elizabeth “Buffy” Bell, wrote, “The chapel was founded by
a man who knew no difference in race, creed or faith". He felt that
visitors should have a spiritual place to go when they were away
from home. We are committed to that purpose and to assist with the
needs of the growing population of full-time residents within the
Since then the chapel has fulfilled its mission housing programs that serve people from birth to the end of life and providing a place of comfort or celebration for events that take place in the lives of people who reside or vacation in this mountain community.
The chapel, formed as a nonprofit organization, owns the land on which it is located, and is overseen by an ten-member board. Upgrades and restoration of the chapel are underway to help meet the needs of the community for the next 50 years.
