Huguenot Memorial Chapel and Monument is a historic church located at Manakin, Powhatan County, Virginia. Built in 1700 by French Huguenots, it was moved to its current location in 1710. It burned down in the Revolutionary War and was rebuilt with parts of the original building. The church building currently used was built in 1954 but the original building still stands next to the new building.[3]

It was added to the National Register of Historic Places in 1988.[1]
