Where in Eastham? - Quiz #4 - The Answer Is....

Last week I published the image (right) of a yellow structure that should be fairly familiar to most Eastham folks. It was the Chapel in the Pines, on Samoset Rd. The Chapel, sometimes known as the First Encounter Coffeehouse, sits next to the Eastham library. The Chapel has been a Universalist (now Unitarian-Universalist) Church since it was dedicated in January 1890. Their website, with an extensive history of the Chapel, is here.

The picture is actually a painting by Edward Hopper, done in 1935, known as "Church in Eastham". It hangs in the Whitney Museum, in New York.
