This small, intimate chapel is designated one of Texas' 20 most outstanding architectural achievements by the Texas Society of Architects. Located on the campus of Texas Woman's University in Denton, Texas. I believe it is the only chapel in the state and nation to only feature women in its stained glass windows. A very special spot to contemplate in silence... More

Wonderful place for a wedding or memorial. The gardens are beautiful, too. My daughter married there and on 20th wedding anniversity went back and took pics with hubby holding pics of wedding. Cute idea.

The lovely and historic "Little Chapel in the Woods" on the TWU campus in Denton, TX is really a must-see. It's a stone chapel built entirely by a group of TWU students in the 1930s, and Eleanor Roosevelt spoke at the dedication. It's a small chapel (seats about 125), but it's an absolutely gorgeous place for a wedding (our son... More

It's really such a beautiful little chapel. Saw this while visiting my friends at TWU. The interior is amazing and the exterior is too! It looks like that of a children's book. If you're nearby TWU, stop and take a look! You'll be glad you did!

This is a historical site on the campus of Texas Women's University. It is very cute. I advise taking the tour of the university, it includes the chapel. My daughter was looking at colleges and she was excited to see the chapel on the campus.

This is a jewel of a non-denominational chapel in the heart of TWU campus. Very unique and a fabulous local for a small wedding.

We just came back from a wedding that we helped to throw, and this church was the most amazing setting for it! It is quaint, but not overly small as it may appear to be. The glass windows and candles all along the rows and behind the stage added the most beautiful touch, plus there are rooms for both a... More

This chapel makes me proud to be an woman and also to work at TWU. The stained glass inside is not like anything I've seen anywhere in the world. It represents women over time.

Nice place for quiet meditation; stained glass is both historic and beautiful. May have trouble parking nearby, but it's a short walk to the visitor parking by the student center.
