Nestled against a backdrop of glorious Wisconsin countryside Hyde Chapel is deeply rooted in the history of Iowa County.
Originally known as the Mill Creek Church, the Chapel was built in 1861, instituted on January 14, 1862 and proudly inducted
into the National Registry of Historic Places on October 13, 1988.
Situated on 40 acres in an area originally called the Mill Creek Valley, Hyde Chapel stands adjacent to a small cemetery that precedes it. While covenants from the Congregational Churches of Wisconsin were originally adopted, the church was always open to people of various faiths. The cemetery bears testimony as Congregationalists, Lutherans, Baptists, Methodists and Catholics who worshipped here together lay buried.
Today, an active Hyde Community Association preserves the structure and the spirit of this tiny country Chapel. Meetings are held at the Chapel in the Spring and Fall where members, friends and family gather for indoor and outdoor clean-up projects followed by a pot-luck luncheon. In December an annual holiday party is celebrated. The public is always welcome.
