The Little Chapel in the Woods is a chapel constructed mainly for meditation and prayer.

It was built in 1939, on the Denton campus of Texas Womans University, and was dedicated by First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt. Inside the chapel, there are many pieces of artwork, as well as stained glass windows. It was designed by regional architect O'Neil Ford.

The building was constructed of native Texas field stone quarried 40 miles from the TSCW campus by the National Youth Administration. In fact, the entire structure, including the stained glass. stone work and lighting, were all completed by the NYA. Funds for the project were raised from donations and various money raising projects, including garage sales and waffle breakfasts.

  • My mom got married here and it was perfect! There were about 70 people in attendance. The building is beautiful and so peaceful. Definitely recommend!
  • My wife and I got married here and we had a great experience. The prep rooms in the back are pretty small, but we didn't really care about that too much.
  • Awesome history. Very pretty.
  • If you want to see somthing beautiful and peaceful go there! I sometimes have a little picnic with my family near it ~ it is not rare to see a weeding taking there or weeding photo shoot, or other types of celebrations.
  • Great church to have an intimate wedding.
