The Little Chapel is nestled in a beautiful, natural setting on TWU's campus. It is a favorite area for professional and amateur photographers alike to snap wedding, prom and senior pictures. Different settings are clustered within close proximity- there's a pond with a bridge, a rustic rocky trail, tall trees with lush clearings, etc. We took senior pictures and promo... More

It's just a tiny little place, built by CCC work crews during the Depression and decorated by Texas Woman's University's art students, but it is beguiling. Famed architect O'Neil Ford designed the building, so if you are an aficionado of architecture, you will appreciate his use of native materials and colors in his design. This chapel is located on the... More

The Little Chapel in the Woods is located on the campus of Texas Woman's University. It is just inside the entrance and does not require any special permissions to visit. The church is quaint and beautiful with many architectural details. It sits in a slightly wooded area just of the parking lot. Looking like a set from a wedding movie,... More

Beautiful little church right smack on the grounds of the university. I was expecting it to be a little more secluded.

Scheduled daughters wedding at the TWU chapel, beautiful facility for small weddings. Staff was great, wonderful time at TWU. As the chapel is located by numerous dorms parking is a problem, recommend you park across the street in large parking lot. Restroom facilities for men is also a problem...as they don't exist, really. Just remember its a Women's university and... More

It was a lovely, stained glass chapel, perfect for a small, intimate wedding. On the Women's campus of the University, and built by women, it is gorgeous and has an impressive organ.

The Little Chapel in the Woods is a rustic, peaceful setting. I have attended several weddings held in the Chapel.

While the chapel is beautiful for events and nestled in a great part of campus with gorgeous landscaping, I would not call this an attraction. Great venue for small weddings, but not a site worth visiting for no reason.

My boyfriend is an architect and is familiar with O'Neil Ford, who designed this chapel in 1939. We were impressed with the workmanship and detail as well as the renovation done in 2001. The setting is picturesque and perfect for a wedding or any special service.
