St. Tikhon's Chapel - "the Church on the Hill" - in Calhan. Tours of the chapel will be offered as part of next weekend's Slavic Fest. The chapel sits on the site of the original St. Mary's Orthodox Church in Calhan. After a fire in the 1920s, the chapel was rebuilt at the same time that the current church was constructed; for a time, the two churches served a divided congregation.
