Duke Chapel...

As promised yesterday, here are some of the images the hubs and I
took while inside the Duke Chapel.
 
  Built in 1932, they host Sunday Services, Weddings,
Funerals and Religious Services.

The Pipe Organ
 
used for Sunday Services, Recitals,
and the study of Organ Performance.

 Beautiful statues...

 gorgeous stained glass,

 I lightened this up a little...
 
 it is a spectacular Chapel.

 
 One last look at the alter...

and a peak at the incredible door!!
 
Breathtaking right?
Tomorrow, we are going shopping in North Carolina.
That was super fun!!

Sharing with Inspired Sunday, thanks Beth for inviting me!

  7. It's stunning, and you got some beautiful pictures. It's hard to believe that something so extravagant could have been built when our country was at such an economic low-point. It must have provided a lot of jobs for some very skilled workers.

  16. I was thinking the same as Charade, very expensive for that time in our history. I thought it was a waste of resources at first. I didn't think of the jobs, it created, though. Now I say, "Bravo!"
