Chapel, Nile

A photo at the Evandale History Society says this was a chapel of ease. I cannot find anything else about it, other than it might have been used for dances etc. These photos are from 2008. There are some from 2011 at the bottom.

There was a Wesleyan chapel at Nile (see below). Is this the same building?

The Lower Nile possesses two stores, a Church of England, a Wesleyan Chapel, State school, Post and Telegraph Office (just opposite the hotel), and some very pretty residences, though limited in number.

A magic lantern entertainment was held in the Wesleyan Chapel on Tuesday evening, but was only fairly attended.

WEDDING BELLS — Nile, Friday.
A very pretty wedding was celebrated here on Wednesday in the Wesleyan chapel. The contracting parties were Miss Evelyn Lewis, youngest daughter of Mr. Charles Lewis, of Young Town, and Mr. Maurice Manning, eldest son of Mr. and Mrs James Manning, of Sheffield.

NILE
On Friday night an American tea was held in the Wesleyan Chapel in aid of the Nile Cricket Club. The function was largely attended by supporters from the Nile and surrounding districts. The Evandale Brass Band was in attendance. The stalls were tastefully decorated by the club’s energetic band of lady supporters.
