Oliver Sawyer7 Cressey Jr.
"I have erected this chapel in memory of my good husband, in grateful love and honor of my dear father, whose home is now the shelter for so many old and enfeebled ones, and to my kind brother, whose gift of the homestead made this possible, in memory of my birthplace and childhood and a long line of ancestry. I now dedicate this place, giving it the name of 'The Creedless Christian Chapel.' That it shall be used for meetings for religious worship, for all suitable gatherings for pleasure, amusement and usefulness for the Home and Village and for the last rites for the dead, who shall be laid to rest on the quiet hillside of our little Cemetery, that here may be an uplook and uplift for all souls who come within the radius of its spoken word and sheltering walls; that it may prove a blessing to the Home, the village, and the Community, is my earnest desire."
