St. Paul's Chapel at Columbia University provides a venue for hundreds of religious and campus events each year, including worship services, concerts, university and private ceremonies. Visitors come from around the world to see the chapel — one of the first buildings in New York City to be designated as an official historic landmark.
Designed by I. N. Phelps Stokes, of the architectural firm of Howells & Stokes, St. Paul's Chapel was the first building at Columbia that was not designed by McKim, Mead & White. Construction began on St. Paul's Chapel in 1904, and it was dedicated in 1907. The chapel was designated an official landmark by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission in 1966.
