The Little Chapel-in-the-Woods
Designed by architect O'Neil Ford the Little Chapel-in-the-Woods is designated one of Texas' 20 most outstanding architectural achievements by the Texas Society of Architects. The students and faculty of Texas Woman's University actively participated in both raising the funds for and designing all the artwork in the Chapel. Throughout 1938 and 1939, more than 300 TWU students and faculty members built components of the Chapel. The Chapel seats 110 persons, including seating in the balcony.

The Wedding Tradition
The first wedding in the Chapel took place in September of 1939, a full month before First Lady Eleanor Roosevelt dedicated the Little Chapel on November 1, 1939. The historic "TWU Wedding Book" (originally called the "TWU Bride's Book") lists many of the weddings that were held in the Chapel over the years. When you select the Chapel for your wedding, you are not only choosing a beautiful place but also becoming part of a rich tradition.

For information on reserving the Chapel, contact the Office of Conference Services at (940) 898 – 3516 or by email. If you’re reserving the Little Chapel for your ceremony, you may want to look into our Wedding Packages since we do all the work for you! However, you do not have to reserve Hubbard Hall in addition to the Little Chapel.
