Rapid City is home to the beautiful Stavkirke, or better known as the "Chapel in the Hills."  The Stavkirke is an exact, full-size replica of Norway's 850 year-old Borgund Church.  It is all wood and held together by pegs.  Carvings include dragons and apostle heads.  The Stavkirke sits in an alpine, park-like setting on Rapid City's west side.  Follow Chapel Lane off Jackson Boulevard (Highway 44). You'll pass through a pleasant residential neighborhood, feeling like you must have missed a turn, and suddenly the Stavkirke spire comes into view.
