Duke Chapel, situated atop a forested ridge at the end of the axis along Campus Drive on West Campus, is considered to be one of the last great examples of the Collegiate Gothic architectural style in the United States and is the iconic and ceremonial heart of the Duke campus. Built between 1930 and 1935, it is the only building on campus constructed with solid Duke stone walls. The Chapel has a 210 tower, a 50 bell carillon, 77 stained glass windows, three pipe organs and seating for 1,600 people.
