Built for the Jekyll Island Club, Faith Chapel is one of the best-known structures in the National Historic Landmark District. It features a window signed and personally installed by Louis Comfort Tiffany and another stained glass panel behind the pulpit depicting the Adoration of the Christ Child designed by Maitland Armstrong and his daughter Helen. The chapel is well-maintained today and is often used for weddings. The gargoyles are a copy of those found at Notre Dame de Paris.

    I have been to the Faith Chapel on Jekyll Island several times. Each time I have asked the guide why instead of a cross on the steeple, there is a different kind of figure that resembles a globe. What does that represent? Nobody seems to know.
