Patten Chapel is the cornerstone of the UTC campus. Dedicated in 1919 as part of The University of Chattanooga, Patten Chapel has seen the days come and go. The original entrance on McCallie Avenue is no longer used. Doors at the rear open to the main court yard of the campus. There is also an entrance to Hooper-Race Hall where restrooms and snacks are located. Parking is available in lot 26, across Douglas Street from Fletcher and Founders Halls.
The Chapel seats approximately 400 people in rich oak pews. The brick is a dark reddish brown that has warmed with the years. Highlighted by the brick are the moss and rust colored stain glass windows. Gothic chandeliers reveal dark brown ornate woodwork arches that finish the ceiling in the seating chamber.
The chancel floor is rich red pottery tile. The woodwork is a deep rich oak again highlighted by the same gothic chandeliers. The pipe organ is no longer available but a small electronic with two manuals is located to the house right of the chancel. A studio piano is available on the house left side.

I was able to easily get in contact with this vendor when I had questions. Employees were available during the rehearsal as well as the ceremony to assist with our needs. I was also contacted a couple of days after and told Congratulations on my wedding.Sent on 04/06/2013
