Long Description:

The diminutive Danforth Chapel is adjacent to the better-known Annie Pfeiffer Chapel, but in many ways it is every bit as delightful. Danforth features the only use of Wright designed leaded glass on the campus, and the building stands virtually unchanged since it was constructed in 1954 and 1955 at a cost of $50,000. A copper roof was installed in the 1990s, completing Wright's vision for the building.

Visitors are welcome on the campus. Please park in marked visitor parking, or along Johnson Avenue, on the west side of campus. Walking tour brochures with maps are available here:
