Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel
Bella Vista is proud to be the home of the Mildred B. Cooper Memorial Chapel. The Chapel was created by renowned Arkansas architect Euine Fay Jones. In 1991, Fay Jones was awarded the American Institute of Architecture’s highest award, the AIA Gold Medal. Fay was a student of Frank Lloyd Wright where he was first introduced to the principle of Organic Architecture (designing to fit the environment).
Visitors are welcome to visit the Chapel and sit a spell in quiet meditation. Surrounded by large glass windows, the Chapel is full of light and shadows, one with it’s surroundings, regardless of the season. It was the hope of Mildred B. Cooper’s family that everyone who visits the Chapel would find it a source of peace and inspiration.
