The little white chapel that stood here was built by soldiers of the garrison and held 150 people. Different ministers came from Richmond each week to preach. A small burial ground was located just 50 yards beyond the chapel—a reminder that life at Drewry's Bluff was not without hazard from battle or disease.

"[Drewry's Bluff] also contains a very neat chapel, the pulpit of which is filled by the ministers from the city on the Sabbath."
