Built in memorial to his beloved wife, Lorraine, Elmo WIlliams donated the Capella by the Sea to the City in 2009. "It is my hope," Elmo said, "that all who enter here will know the serenity of her spirit and find peace."  Inspired by the work of famous architect, E. Fay Jones, the one-of-a-kind Capella by the Sea was designed by Jones' associates, architects Maurice Jennings and David McKee, and constructed by local builders Paul Viale, Rich Miller, Mike Owens and mason, Don Scoggins.
