All Saints' Chapel - Sewanee, TN

All Saints' Chapel

When the University of the South was first established in Sewanee, TN, plans were setup to eventually have a campus chapel.

Half a century passed until the foundation was laid for the Gothic chapel made of Tennessee Sandstone. Walls were built and a temporary roof was added so that chapel could be used in 1910. The permanent roof wasn't finally completed until 1957.

The tower on the right is a carillon tower, known as the Shapard Tower. The tower was donated to the school as a gift by the Shapard Family. The largest bell weighs 7,500 lbs.
