weddings
The Sellecks Corner Chapel is available for wedding ceremonies. The historic chapel seats approximately 70 guests, in its original pews. Original paned windows on both side walls look out onto a landscape virtually unchanged since the 19th century, with an antique graveyard on one side.

Evening lighting is provided by the authentic kerosene chandelier and wall sconces, for a magical glow. The chapel is not electrified, and is heated in winter by a wood-burning stove. Air conditioning is similarly unavailable.

concerts
Sellecks Corner Chapel has hosted several chamber music concerts and looks forward to hosting more similar events. The acoustics of the intimate chapel lend a rich sound to the music, with evening concerts lit by lanterns.

The chapel stands on the border between New Canaan CT and Pound Ridge NY. Many inns and restaurants are within 6 miles of the chapel, with the Scotts Corner shopping district barely one mile to the north.

the organ
The organ was recently refurbished, and is now in excellent working order. The Epworth organ was manufactured by the Williams Organ Company of Chicago, Illinois. The serial number 21121 places the purchase date around 1905.

The Williams Organ Co. sold their reed organs through ministers, particularly Methodists. Their manufacturing capacity in 1899 was 1500 organs per year. Lulubelle Selleck Harris, daughter of Sivori Selleck of neighboring Pound Ridge, served as organist for many years.
