Cowtown has an exceptional collection of small sacred places whose architecture and sacred art continue to be an inspiration for the entire community. Please join Partners for Sacred Places, Texas as we tour four of these special places from all periods of Fort Worth’s history. On our tour, we will visit the following:
Mary Vaughn Leonard Memorial/Shuman Chapel at Historic St. Andrew’s Episcopal Church, to view the spectacular oil-on-linen altar piece “Christ in Majesty,” painted in 2009 by renowned artist Leonard Porter.
Gothic Revival Oakwood Cemetery Chapel, designed in 1912 by Waller and Field Architects, which features historic lower-level body delivery and storage facilities with one of the three casket lifts of its kind in existence. Oakwood is the resting place of Jim “Longhaired” Cartwright, Luke Short, William “Gooseneck Bill” McDonald, W.T. Waggoner, Burk Burnett, and many others of Fort Worth’s most notable and notorious citizens.
Dorothea Children’s Chapel at St. John’s Episcopal Church, with diminutive features and furnishings, and authentic stone-on-stone detailing (1966 by Joseph J. Patterson, AIA).
Marty Leonard Community Chapel at Lena Pope Home, created in 1990 by AIA Gold Medalist E. Fay Jones, FAIA. This edifice has been described by the architect as an “instrument for nature’s music as light and shadows move and change throughout the day".
