Nice little Chapel - but not worth the trip - parking is bad - and directions to the Chapel is bad. I have seen many Chapel all over the world. Pass on this and visit the Court house.

We visited it due to a family wedding and found it pleasant though a bit sparsely apportioned. You need to get there EARLY for a wedding or you'll have a trek in the heat if its summer.

Nice place to visit if you are on campus. I've attended several weddings there and it makes a great wedding venue, but otherwise not a lot to see. You can probably see it all in less than 30 minutes.

I was here for a wedding and it was perfect size for a small wedding party. Stained glass windows are very pretty. Chapel is a little dark, making photography challenging, but can be done.

I went to school at TWU and lived in the dorms that tower over the Little Chapel in the Woods. It's a lovely old fashioned chapel. The lighting can be a little dark, so if you want pictures, make sure the photographer has the ability...More
