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.

We tried several years ago when we were in the area, but it was closed due to holiday schedule. I vowed to return someday & am sooo very glad we did! This is just the most beautiful place! The wonderful lady who gave us our tour was a wealth of information & has a true love of this gift that... More

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!

While staying in Skaneateles we were directed to the Willard Chapel by the local visitors center. It was absolutely amazing! It is the only complete Louis Comfort Tiffany Chapel in existence and WOW what a sight. The Chapel is operated by a local preservation group, nonprofit. The volunteer docent who gave us the tour, Rita, was extremely knowledgeable and completely... More

Wow -- what a chapel. Well worth visiting, even after you receive a parking ticket from the City for not realizing that where you parked was a "kisok" area. Oh well. The Willard Memorial Chapel has quite the history, starting as the Auburn Theological Seminary campus, it sat on 10 acres of land, and in 1939 they relocated to NYC.... More

Be prepared to be wowed! A complete Tiffany Chapel from floor tiles to stenciled vaulted ceiling. Lamps, stained glass windows - of course, a Memorial Tablet and the entire atmosphere. A nice video will orient you to the design, Auburn Theological Seminary and the big players there and the City of Auburn. The Community Preservation Committee has engaged a company... More

This is a beautiful chapel and our docent knew so much more about the history of the building than we could have ever gleaned on our own. We could take photos, which was such a nice bonus!
