I was with my son-in-law and two granddaughters for a day in Denton and after driving around the Courthouse Square this was an impulse stop. I had read about the Chapel and wasn't sure my family would enjoy it. But we were close... So glad we stopped! We had the place to ourselves which was especially nice. The stained glass windows are wonderful. We all enjoyed our time in the Chapel for different reasons. My youngest granddaughter loved walking around the rock garden next to the Chapel. A lovely visit!

Located on the campus at the Texas Women's University.....just park and walk through. There was one attendant there however, they were going over wedding plans with a couple. What a neat historical church. So beautiful and seeing the architecture was astounding. It's been named one of Texas' most outstanding architectural achievements. It was built during the great depression by O'Neil Ford. It is open to public with no fee

I went because of the architect Mr. O'neil Ford. A famous architect in TX and the Southwest. He designed "The Tower of Americas, La Vilata, 26 buildings at Trinity University all in San Antonio and lots more.
He grew up in Denton, got an education in Denton and returned to Denton after a very successful career.

I was not disappointed!!

Charming on the outside and a mini-cathedral inside. Beautiful!!!!!!
For weddings...Perfect, soooo nice and intimate with preparation rooms on either side of the pulpit and
Easy to find. Right in the shadow of the 2 Towers. Can't miss them. Parking is 100 yards away.
During Covid you need an appointment.
Worth the stop.

My parents got married here 46 years ago. Such a beautiful little unknown gem. It is super tiny but has great views and serves as a wonderful place to say your vows.

The wait was very long and the food was bad. It was a wedding party so of course it was slower than it probably ever was.

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.

Are you planning a small intimate wedding in Denton, Texas. If so, The Little Chapel in the Woods should be your choice for location. Located on the campus of Texas Women's University it is small buy extremely cozy. The surrounding grounds also offer multiple ideal locations for saving your day in pictures.

This beautiful chapel is open generous hours. For an historic location, it's nice not to have shortened hours. It feels, instead, like it's open for all who need a moment's solace. My daughter's wedding was held in this chapel 2 years ago. The University (Texas Woman's University) was very helpful and professional in planning our event. But, more importantly, once inside you can feel the spirit of the students and other souls who've come in here with love. Gorgeous and meaningful stained glass windows. Soaring ceiling. It feels much larger inside than it looks from the outside. Beautiful setting under majestic trees = wonderful and quiet picnic spot.

Perhaps I didn't know where I was going (but it's small) and I didn't see much to it. In my opinion it was boring.
