    Join Historic Rocky Springs Chapel, Inc. (HRSC) for a Civil War style nondenominational church service. The services are conducted by a preacher wearing Civil War period attire & worshipers sing hymns that were popular during the American Civil War. Most sermons preached were originally delivered between 1861-1865. A living history program immediately follows each service. The wearing of Civil War period attire to the church service & living history program is encouraged (but not required). Everyone is welcome to attend! HRSC is a 501 (c)(3) nonprofit organization committed to the preservation & interpretation of Rocky Springs Chapel (built 1882) & Rocky Springs School House (built 1839). Rocky Springs Chapel is located adjacent to Rocky Springs School House, which was the site of a Civil War cavalry skirmish on July 8, 1864.  A Civil War Trails program marker is located on the grounds of Rocky Springs School House which interprets the skirmish for the public.
