Narcissa Cox Vanderlip contributed the 3 1/2-acre site for the chapel, for which the cornerstone was dedicated on July 16, 1949. Lloyd Wright, son of the famous architect Frank Lloyd Wright, was hired to design the chapel which opened in 1951. Postcard printed on reverse with "WAYFARERS' CHAPEL / Portuguese Bend, California / The Wayfarers' Chapel, near Portuguese Bend, represents a concept of worship found in writings of Emanuel Swedenborg, which relates religion to life in a clear and positive way. Designed by Lloyd Wright and built almost entirely of glass, the Chapel will eventually be enclosed by evergreen trees now planted around both sides." Also printed with "MIRRO-KROME CARD BY H.S.
