The history of The Chapel, formerly New Chapel United Methodist Church, dates to the early nineteenth century in what was then known as Beech Point, Tennessee. The community would later change its name to Elbridge in honor of local physician, Dr. Elbridge Richardson. The Chapel was donated to Discovery Park by the Elbridge Cemetery Association and moved to its current location in 2012.

Descendants of former church members of New Chapel United Methodist Church gather periodically for a reunion at The Chapel and throughout the year weddings, special services and performances are held in there.
