Duke University Chapel
Built in the early 1930s, the tower of Duke Chapel soars 210 feet (65 meters) into the sky. James B. Duke, founder of the chapel, felt that its presence would influence the spiritual lives of Duke students. Fine ornamentation, stained glass and four beautifully crafted organs, including a Flentrop or "Bach's organ," draw thousands of admirers each year. For more details, check website.
The Duke chapel is a gorgeous, towering cathedral built with a unique stone that has flashes of blue, orange, and other colors. The stonework is exquisitely carved, and the interior stained glass is breathtaking. Be sure to visit the catacombs, where some of Duke's most notable figureheads have been buried.
