Smirl Chapel Relocation

Tate Farms needs your help! The Smirl Chapel, built in Heath, Texas in 1898 was slated to be torn down and we have gladly stepped in to save it. We will be moving the 3,000 square foot chapel 8 miles to our event center, Summerfield at Tate Farms in Rockwall, Texas. In order to move a building of this size and age, the roof will need to be removed and the building will need to be cut in half. The building is in need of major repairs due to years of wear and tear and many different updates done to the structure over that time. Our plan is to restore the chapel back to it’s original condition and aesthetic.

We are estimating this project to cost upwards of $300,000 and we are asking for your help in raising at least half of that! We are so excited to be a part of saving a piece of Rockwall County history and we hope you are too. Please watch our video, share our page, tell your friends and DONATE! Every dollar counts. No amount is too small. And for those of you wishing to make a large donation, the First Baptist Church of Heath has made it possible for you to donate directly through the church in order to receive the maximum tax benefit. We will continue to update you on the progress and we ask that you keep us in your thoughts and prayers as we work quickly to get this building moved.

Thank you, 

The Tate Family
