Ebenezer Chapel

“In time a cemetery grew up about the church. Through the years, the community center shifted to Dayton and finally there was no longer a church at Ebenezer (Webfoot) but the cemetery is still known as the Odell cemetery. In 1926 a lovely little chapel was built on the site of the original Ebenezer chapel with funds left by W.H. Odell as a memorial to his parents, John and Sarah Odell. Mr. Walker said of it. ‘This is a sturdy concrete structure well symbolic of the enduring results of the life and labors of this devoted couple.’ “
