Shandon Chapel

The Chapel and Library were begun in 1993 and represent ancient church design from Mexico, Spain and France. It was also designed to accommodate artifacts acquired from the William Randolph Hearst collection.

Pacific Post & Beam was the general contractor for this project and was also trusted to install the 13th-century Moorish polychrome wood ceiling over the nave.

Chapel Hill is a private chapel just outside of Shandon, Ca., 18 miles east of Paso Robles.
