Houston Methodist The Wiess Memorial Chapel At 6565 Fannin St.

Recommended Posts

In 1951, the The Wiess Memorial Chapel was built in the Houston Methodist campus at the Texas Medical Center.  Decades later, the chapel was disabled and placed back together inside the Houston Methodist Dunn Tower which is resides today.

I'd love to go look sometime.  I'll have to ask my chaplain friend of they want to go visit with me.

Here's a brochure/flyer from the 1950s regarding The Wiess Memorial Chapel.  I'll look for actual photos of the building later on this week. Maybe the City of Houston Public Library Digital Collections will have a picture?


Edit: Found a photo of the historic chapel!

The chapel was located to the right of the hospital.

I've wanted to stop in a number of times, but I'm always on the other side of Fannin, so I use the little non-denominational meditation room on the second floor of the outpatient center.
