My husband and I took our small children and we parked near the University and just walked to the chapel. The walk was leading up to the Chapel was beautiful as well not just the Chapel alone. We didn't stay long. Took some pictures and we left. Just it was a nice time with my family.

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.

The Little Chapel has been a part of the TWU campus since 1938. The stained glass windows on each side depict women and their roles in life. Ecumenical services are held on Sundays when the university is in session.

This is a beautiful little chapel.. The name fits it perfectly... My son and daughter in law were married in the chapel... It is beautiful inside with it's stained glass windows ... Nice tile floors and old wooden church pews.. I went back again a few months ago to attend another wedding.

My bride of 25 years and I were married in this little chapel and was one of the most wonderful places for a wedding as I can imagine. From the handcrafted wood interior to the incredible stain glassed windows this little church has a palatable warmth and quiet beauty that no larger church can compete with. After 25 years of...

I attended TWU for 3 years finally graduating in May. I would always walk in this little chapel as a way just to take a break from the stress of classes. Such a nice little chapel, my only regret is not witnessing a wedding in it.

In this new age of Large wedding venues it's still nice to go to a wedding in this beautiful old chapel. I've only been to two weddings here but they have been my favorites for ambiance.

Stopped by here to have quiet mediation time. It is very beautiful and serene. It is easier to find parking when there are no college classes.

It is definitely "a little chapel in the woods." Still, it is on the TWU campus, nestled in a beautiful little garden area and surrounded by native oak trees. Perfect setting for small meaningful events such as weddings, honorariums or memorials. The nearby town center of Denton, TX is filled with all levels of restaurants...from beer gardens to fine dining... More
