World's Smallest Church; near Syracuse, NY

The precariously named Cross Island Chapel actually sits on a dock in the middle of a pond near Syracuse, New York. Built in 1989, the nondenominational church is only about three feet by six feet and has only two seats. For a 1990 wedding, there was only enough room in the chapel for the minister and the betrothed, leaving the guests to sit in boats outside. Although there are no regular services, the church is "available for special occasions and meditation," just don't expect to be able to stretch out too much during your contemplation.

Is 50 not enough for you? Head on over to for hundreds more roadside attractions.
