Who knew we'd find Moorish influences in a Presbyterian chapel in upstate NY? Seeing these Tiffany windows up close is well worth the trip. In fact, everything except the organ was designed & crafted by Tiffany! Beautiful, and a real glimpse into a creative genius and his company's work.

This was an attraction we had really looked forward to seeing. Local pamphlets on Auburn places gave Sunday afternoon hours of 1-4 for the chapel, so we changed our trip to Auburn from Saturday to Sunday to accommodate this. We got there at three o'clock, and it was locked tight. Locals told us that they did not believe it was... More

If you like Tiffany glass. Well worth the stop. The Tiffany windows, chandaliers, and mosaic relief are a beautiful example of Tiffany.

Boy am I glad we made the 2 hour drive to tour the chapel. It is an amazing sight with an amazing story. As expected, the Tiffany windows were beautiful but little did I know that Tiffany also designed the chandaliers, floors and wall decor. Our docent was an excellent tour guide. Very, very knowledgeable. You are allowed to take... More

One of the few remaining Tiffany chapels in the US. Painstakingly restored and beautiful to look at. They offer chamber music performances through the summer and has become a very popular wedding venue. Worth a stop if you're travelling through.

This is a beautiful chapel. Too bad it is not still being used regularly. The windows and all the Tiffany glass-work is amazing. We did find it humorous, that our tour guide insisted in finding "objects" in the abstract glass pieces of the windows. We just enjoyed the beauty of it and the intricacy of the designs.

This chapel was awesome and the Tiffany glass was absoulutely stunning. So glad we stopped in and had Lucy take us around for a tour. She is fantastic and a wealth of information. Go by and see this when you are in the area.

This chapel was entirely designed by Tiffany. The windows were not the large nature or figure ones that I normally associate with Tiffany. But, seeing the total affect was interesting.

I did not know that a full Tiffany designed chapel still existed outside the museum down in Florida. The tour was very informative and we were allowed to take pictures. The workmanship is amazing!
