Osage Nation Wakon Iron Chapel
The communal spirit of Village residents is how the Wakon Iron came to exist. In the Osage tradition, families bring their loved ones home for wakes and funerals. A Village resident, Wakon Iron, called a meeting to order and created a board to build a chapel for future funerals and wakes. And so it began.
Wallace Design Collective provided civil and structural engineering services for a new 4,800 square foot chapel. The new chapel replaces an older chapel that was formerly a schoolhouse.
