The Garrett Memorial Chapel on Bluff Point overlooking Keuka Lake is an architectural and spiritual beauty. It was created in 1931 by Paul and Evelyn Garrett so that they could honor their son Charles' dying wish "to go home to Bluff Point." Charles Garrett passed away in 1929 at the age of 26 from tuberculosis. The silver bronze door to the crypt portrays the everyday activities of The Fisher, The Sower, The Student, The Scientist, The Artisan, Sports, Music, Painting, and Motherhood.
