SEDONA, AZ - Called one of the seven man-made wonders of Arizona, the Chapel of the Holy Cross sits on the edge of Sedona and is a site that attracts millions of visitors from around the world.
Completed in April of 1956, the chapel was built as a dream of world traveler Marguerite Staude. She was inspired by the construction of the Empire State Building after seeing a cross in the iron beams as the skyscraper was built.

After trying to build the chapel at a few different sights, Staude had moved to Sedona and saw the "Madonna & Child" rock formation in the Arizona red rocks and knew this was the place.
