There’s No Chapel In The World Like This One In Nashville
The popular Scarritt-Bennett Center, located a mere two miles from downtown Nashville, has made a name for itself artistically and architecturally. It’s where photographers are drawn and lovers wish to wed. It’s a Nashville gem, with Wightman Chapel the apple of its eye.
The Scarritt-Bennett Center is known as one of the most stunning pieces of Nashville architecture. The gorgeous chapel is merely a stones throw from both Vanderbilt and midtown, and isn't too far from the heart of the city.
It was in 1924 that Scarritt College for Christian Workers moved from Kansas City from Nashville, and their new organization name was minted in Music City.
The Wightman Chapel, the gorgeous Nashvillian masterpiece, has housed hundreds of weddings and served as the backdrop for many a Nashville based event.
Even Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. spoke here during the apex of the Civil Rights movement.
The center was utilized as a college until 1988, after which it closed down and has served Nashville outside of the educational sphere ever since.
The Wightman Chapel is included in the center's buildings that are on the National Registrar of Historical Places, having been built before 1940.
The chapel was named named to honor Maria Davies Wightman, the wife of the local bishop. All of the buildings were designed in late Gothic Revival architectural style.
Looking to have your wedding here? The chapel can hold up to 300 of your closest friends and family, and proves to be a stunning day-of masterpiece. The historic venue has even been named a top spot for the years 2012 and 2013.
The ten acres attributed to the Scarritt Bennett Center are arguably the most beautiful in the heart of Nashville. Historic, brilliant, and a slight nod to the heated artistry of the southern heartland, Wightman Chapel is a must on your list.
