Evans Memorial Chapel

Flower of Life - 19 circles and 36 arcs create an intricate pattern

Evans Memorial Chapel is a beloved landmark at the University of Denver built in the Early Gothic Revival style. Tradition has it that it was disassembled brick by brick, and then reassembled in the center of campus. Originally John Evans, the founder of the University of Denver, built the chapel in the 1860's in downtown Denver. The building is now on the National Register of Historic Places (no. 74000567) and a registered historical site of the United Methodist Church (no. 210). Used as a place of worship for decades, and by religious organizations on campus still today, it is also one of the most desirable places for weddings of the University of Denver students, faculty, and staff.
