The Story of Finley Chapel
Located in the North Texas town of Krum, Finley Chapel and Event Center is a unique, family owned and operated venue for weddings, celebrations, events and meetings. Less than a 10 mile drive from downtown Denton, our 5,700 square foot location can accommodate up to 150 people in the chapel and up to 100 in the reception hall or garden area. Finley Chapel and Event Center is proud to be located in a unique and historic building which has been updated and includes modern amenities.
Finley Chapel and Event Center is located in the building that began its life as the First United Methodist Church of Krum. The congregation used the building from 1924 until 2009 when they expanded into their new facilities. The foundation of the building was laid in 1924 and houses our reception hall and meeting room. The sanctuary was added in 1934 and makes the perfect location for wedding ceremonies. Finally in 1973 the educational wing of the church was added which now accommodates our bride and groom rooms. Many residents of Krum have fond memories of spending time in the building to either attend church or a special celebration. Finley Chapel and Event Center is honored to preserve the history of this building while also being a part of its future.
Finley Chapel and Event Center is named after the family that was instrumental in establishing the town of Krum. In the fall of 1886, Louis L. and Gabrilla Finley sold 200 acres of their land to the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroads for a town site, which would later become Krum, Texas. Mr. Finley would go on to become the town’s first merchant by opening a general store. Although none of the Finley family remain in Krum today, they still remain an important part of its history.
