What’s known as the “Red Chapel,” is owned by the Diocese of Green Bay and was scheduled to be demolished this summer, but the Diocese now says that plan is on hold.
In May, Action 2 News reported about the planned demolition and that the Brown County Historical Society had until June to come up with a plan to save the chapel.
“It’s got a very peaceful feeling to it and it’s really a wonderful part of our history,” said Christine Dunbar, executive director of the Brown County Historical Society.
