Willard Chapel is Tiffany in it's entirety: pews, mosaic floor, chandeliers, windows, and a magnificent stained glass window of Jesus grasping Peter who leapt out of the boat in faith. It is the lone standing building of what used to be a seminary. A must see when in Auburn, NY or its environs.
To my knowledge this is the only chapel designed, and built by the Tiffany Company. This was located at a former seminary. There used to be two structures located at it as well, that were demolished.

If you are a Tiffany fan then this would be a very interesting tour. The tour guide attempted to perform a Powerpoint presentation... 更多
The WIllard Chapel is the remains of a one-time seminary, now partly restored. I enjoyed seeing the chapel; the guide was knowledgeable and engaged, but somehow I was left feeling that something was missing. I wish that were not the case, and i would still encourage you to go for yourself.
