My husband and I found the Chapel a few years ago. We have since taken most visitors to our city to the cemetery to see both this and the Garfield Monument. I was there again yesterday to share with friends from Missouri. We were fortunate enough to arrive just as a docent was starting a tour. The depth of information... More

If you admire Tiffany glass and haven't visited this Chapel you are sadly missing something in your life. This beautiful and well preserved work of art is well worth your visit.

We love Tiffany glass and this chapel is a perfect treasure. Entrance to the cemetery and the chapel is free, and a knowledgeable docent is there to give you as much or little information as you wish. The stained glass window is exquisite. The walls are all made of glass mosaic. Even the floor you walk on is beautiful. Enjoy... More

A must see if you are in the area. The entire interior of the chapel is decorated in glass tiles. One of only 4 buildings that have survived that have interiors entirely decorated by Louis Comfort Tiffany!

The Tiffany glass piece and spectacular mosaic inside the chapel are very fetching! It is also interesting to learn about the technology that is built into the facility at the turn of the century, really quite amazing. Worth the stop while in the cemetery!

What a fantastic trip and tour. This Wade Chapel is beautiful with rich details and the tour guide gave us a really great detailed description of the history and art. The window is beautiful. This is a jewel unknown by many in Cleveland. Our date of touring was June 29, 2016.
