“Cute chapel and surrounding area”
Reviewed June 7, 2013

This is a small, but cute little chapel on the TWU campus. Right next to the chapel is a little walking path through a small picturesque flower garden. It looked like there would normally be a fountain flowing through this area, but it was not on the day we visited. There were several turtles in a nearby pond that were fun for kids to watch. This place is free and a nice spot to visit.

“Very interesting!”
Reviewed March 12, 2013 via mobile

At first glace from outside I was not sure. It looked so small. I toured the beautiful grounds first. It has a small nature trail and a pond full of about a bunch of turtles. Which I thought was very neat. Then I went into the chapel to be overwhelmed by its simplistic beauty. If you are in the area, I would highly recommend seeing it! Just call to make sure there isn't a wedding going on.

“Small but beautiful, no parking”
Reviewed January 17, 2013

VERY beautiful place! Old wooden pews, incredibly high ceilings, and a decent size stage considering the size of the place. Small rooms in the back for dressing before wedding, etc. Set on beautiful grounds that are always nicely maintained. Parking is horrible when classes are in session (on campus at TWU).

“Beautiful and quaint!”
Reviewed September 11, 2012

A dear friend had her wedding at this chapel. It's a beautiful chapel with an intimate feel. There are large trees and nice landscaping around it, which allow for great pictures.
