A beautiful, stately building. Hints of Craftsman style. Amazing tile work and inlays. It's what you might think a Lily of the Valley would look like if it tried to be a chapel.
Very cool. We had a wonderful historian who shared the stories behind the chapel - the connection between the Wade family, the Tiffany family, the Cleveland Art Museum, a trip to Paris, the symbolism of artwork down to even the floor and pews and even how the lights had electricity before anywhere else nearby because of a New York connection. Before this we visited League Park down the street for some baseball history and afterwards found Ellliot Ness’ grave, as well as Chapman, Garfield and Rockefeller.
