Pretty Place, aka Fred Symmes Chapel
Fred W. Symmes Chapel is part of the YMCA Camp Greenville. The building was given by Mr. Fred W. Symmes for the enjoyment of the boys and girls who camp here each summer and is the spiritual center of the camp. Camp Greenville has been in existence since 1912 and covers 1400 acres. It is a year-round operation serving as a summer camp, environmental education center, group and conference center, and wedding venue. Camp Greenville welcomes visitors to enjoy the beauty of the Chapel during daylight except when it is in use for campers’ Sunday and Monday morning worship services, or for another reserved event (weddings, dedications, memorial services, etc.)Pretty Places is one of the more popular wedding venues in the area, and a because of its beauty, a pretty popular tourist attraction. Cedar Mountain Cafe is a short 1.5 miles from the turn-off for the YMCA and a great place for breakfast or lunch before hand, or for wedding receptions and family dinners. Talk to our catering and private event people for more information.
