Yeah, that seems kind of incongruous, doesn't it. But here's the deal - as you can find from Marquette University's website - this small, stone chapel was decaying in France and brought stone by stone to Long Island in the 1920's and then somehow dismantled again and reassembled on Marquette University's campus. It is a treasure and is usually open... More

This is an intriguing historical piece that was disassembled in France and shipped here to be reassembled on what is now the Marquette campus. This chapel is free to tour and a charming spot to peak into if you find yourself near Marquette University in the downtown area.

We were not able to go inside the building - it appears it is only open at limited times. It is about a 10 to 15 minutes visit and if you are in the area/vicinity it is worth the quick stop. Parking is not convenient and it will take you at least 10 to 15 minutes to walk depending where... More

This adorable chapel, on the grounds of Marquette University, was moved to Milwaukee in 1965. It is beautifully displayed and highlighted by meticulously attended grounds near the statue of Marquette. Unfortunately, the chapel was closed when we visited so we were not able to see the interior.

This lovely chapel sits in the heart of the Marquette campus. It is open to the public & free. Once you enter, you can feel as though you have stepped back in the Middle Ages.

Peaceful, tiny chapel imported from France in the center of the great urban Marquette campus. Worth a visit to this corner of the city.

What an amazing story behind an amazing building. Very serene and beautiful. It is a very faith filled experience. I want to attend Mass there some day. Very easy to find and the guides there are very knowledgeable.

Interesting history of the chapel which was brought over from France. Small chapel but only a small part was the supposed chapel where Joan of Arc prayed before going into battle.

This is a nice little chapel to visit if you are near the Marquette University Campus. It is very small, so probably isnt worth the trip if its your only activity planned for the day. There is usually a volunteer who can tell you a lot of history about the building.
