Mabel Memorial Chapel is located three miles (5 km) southeast of Harrisonburg, Virginia. It was built and endowed by Dr. Lucian Heneberger, a naval officer, as a memorial to his wife Mabel who had died many years before the building of the chapel in 1898. The congregation is a branch of the Harrisonburg Presbyterian Church. Moses Wenger, a Mennonite, donated the land for the church, school, and cemetery. This gift likely gave the Mennonites a right to hold services there once a month for the benefit of the Wenger, Good, and Landis families who lived nearby. These services were discontinued in the 1920s.
