The Lakewood Memorial Chapel
While you’re enjoying the tree canopy, take a moment to stop by the chapel, which will be open to guests during this event. This stunning chapel is one of our city’s most beloved architectural treasures. Because of its incredible beauty and historical significance, it is a popular place for end-of-life ceremonies, weddings, concerts, tours and other celebrations of beauty, art and remembrance.
Dedicated in 1910, the Chapel was modeled after the Hagia Sophia in Istanbul by prominent Minneapolis architect Harry Wild Jones. Its 10-million piece mosaic interior, created by New York designer Charles Lamb, features a 40-foot high dome ringed with stained glass windows and 12 mosaic angels.
Listed on the National Register of Historic Places, the Chapel is one of the finest examples of Byzantine mosaic architecture in the country. Learn more about the Lakewood Memorial Chapel.
