Cross Island Chapel

Location:   Oneida, New York
Year:   1989

The world's smallest functioning church, the Cross Island Chapel, stands on a small island in the midst of Sconondoa Pond in Oneida, New York. Built in 1989, with a floor area of 51 inches x 81inches (28.68 square feet), it seats 2 people and has standing room for an officiant. Witnesses sit onshore. It is accessible only by boat, and has hosted numerous weddings. Cross Island Chapel is non-denominational, and "dedicated as a witness to God." A cross stands nearby on a rocky outcrop.
