Simmering for years the back of Gary's mind was this ambitious set piece. The purpose was to make more effective use of this area of the property, and to properly display the Faces of Man. Construction finally began in the summer of 1998 with experiments on the proper size, position, and lighting of the "following busts," followed by construction of the main wall. In 1999 the columns and arches were added, and finally, in 2000, the "Seventh Face of Man" was added in the central location at the head of the chapel.

These pictures show some of the process of installing the Chapel Ruins. Construction pictures may be found Beneath the Hallowed Haunting Grounds from the detail page for the particular effect.

Following the retiremen of the Hallowed Haunting Grounds, the arches and columns from the ruins were given to Turbidite Manor. When the Manor was moved to Nashville, the ruins were given to our friends at The House at Haunted Hill where they may appear in the cemetery.
