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.

Definitely worth the time to check the Duke Chapel out. It is one of a kind and very beautiful. It is located centrally on campus.

A wonderful building to visit and enjoy visually. It's not real, of course, having been built in the 1930's but it's close enough to medieval that, with the organ in use, you can close your eyes a bit and imagine that you were overseas.

If you're on campus you have to make time to see the Chapel. The architecture and stained glass are magnificent. It is quiet and peaceful and there is a person inside to answer any questions. A truly magnificent Cathedral. Don't miss seeing it.
