Bergstrom Rock & Gem Collection

Enjoy Art in Chappell

The Chappell Memorial Art Gallery is part of the Chappell Public Library, 289 Babcock, which is also home to the Bergstrom Rock and Gem Collection, including mastodon fossils, and polished stones and gems. How did Chappell get such collections? Orianna Ward Chappell, wife of the railroad executive for whom the town was named in 1884, donated many of the items.
