Cathedral of the Pines in Rindge, New Hampshire

Founded in 1945, this non-profit sanctuary honors the memory of Sanderson Sloane, as well as all the fallen men and women who served in World War II. It is situated on the 236-acre property, on a hilltop with breathtaking views of Monadnock Mountain. This non-denominational worship space, adjacent buildings, trails, and gardens charge no entry fee and are open from dawn to dusk, year-round.  

Although it has no nave or stained glass windows, this ‘cathedral’ still performs many of the functions of a brick-and-mortar church. Many couples have been married here, while others lie buried in the two cemeteries. One of the burial grounds is reserved for the Sloane family and trustees; the other is for those who have chosen to have their cremated remains rest here.
