Buckhannon, West Virginia: Randy Brown Memorial Chapel
There is often a reason for roadside attractions. The catch is that you have to get out of the car and find them out.
This small chapel is located on Route 20 a few miles south of downtown Buckhannon. It's on the southeast corner at Sago Road, surrounded by a small park. Those who enter discover that Randy Brown was a child who died around the age of 8. His family decided to honor him in this manner. The surrounding area is called Children's Memorial Park.
By the way, the Sago Mine Disaster Monument is about three miles down Sago Road.
