We loved visiting this Chapel nestled in the trees. The stained glass was stunning! Reading about the history was fun too!

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.

This is just an unremarkable little building on the north edge of TWU campus. Maybe I'm just an old philistine, but it does nothing for me. We had family photos taken in the grounds surrounding the chapel. It's a nice location for photos. But the chapel itself . . . I don't think it's worth a trip to north Denton.

If you are trying to find a classic place for a marriage in Denton County this is it. This is simply a treasure in this region and to share with your family and friends will be a true treat for all! It's also a good place to do photos as the garden area is quite nice too.

O'Neil Ford designed this small chapel on the TWU campus. I have been going to this chapel for over 60 years. It is a beautiful place for a small wedding. The surrounding grounds are well landscaped and the tulips in spring are magnificent.
