About Willard Memorial Chapel
It's difficult for most visitors to focus on just one
marvelous Tiffany work inside the historic Willard
Memorial Chapel. The skills and talents of Louis
Comfort Tiffany are showcased all around, literal-
ly from floor to ceiling.
All of the famous artist's many trades are evi-
dent inside the Auburn chapel, known as the only
complete religious Tiffany interior in the world
that has not been altered or moved.
The chapel opened to the public on Oct. 24,
1894, as part of the original Auburn Theological
Seminary campus. Tiffany's work is everywhere --
in the mosaic floors, pews, pillars, windows, chan-
deliers, ceilings, pulpit, chairs and stage.
