  • Reviews
  • Open daily to the public, 365 days a year from sunrise to sunset. The grounds surrounding the chapel as well as the structure itself were the gifts of Sea Ranch residents, Robert and Betty Buffum. Upon completion in December of 1985, the chapel was dedicated in memory of Kirk Ditzler, a navy aviator, zoologist, and artist. The Sea Ranch Chapel Foundation was implemented for the continued maintenance and care of the chapel and grounds. Pat and Lyle Ditzler, long time Sea Ranch residents and dear friends of the Buffums were intimately involved in the joyous design of the chapel.

    James Hubbell, artist and architectural designer is the creative genius who combined local natural materials with gifted local contractors, craftsmen and artisans. The chapel is protected by a carefully designed native habitat that is the product of several talented landscape planners. It is maintained by guardian volunteers of the chapel.

    • BEAUTIFUL AND SERENE

      This architectural marvel is not to be missed. Set along the California north coast, the chapel is one with the coastal setting. The details are lovely. Plan to spend much time so as not to miss them.
