Attraction details
Owner description: Located on Duke University's West Campus, Duke Chapel is as magnificent in structure as it is rich in ministry. Construction of the Chapel was begun in October of 1930 and completed two years later. During that time students continually congregated at the stonemasons' huts to watch the Chapel take shape. It was first used for Commencement in 1932 and was formally dedicated on June 2, 1935.Duke Chapel continues to be a Christian church of uniquely interdenominational character and purpose. Through its tradition of inspiring worship and music, and a calling to walk with people of all faiths and circumstances, Duke Chapel acts a beacon of grace on campus and in the community. All are welcome to take part in worship, learning, dialogue, and service.

This is well worth a visit if you are strolling the Duke campus. Beautiful stain glass windows. Lots of good concerts too.

Midnight mass is nice here, and a wedding would be impressive, but it lacks the history and scale of Northern or European churches. Duke Gardens is a lovely walk away, though.

Take a tour. It is amazing what one man with a lot of money could accomplish. The windows and organ are out of the ordinary.
