chapelThe Jewel of the Neighborhood

The San Pedro Chapel, with its rich history, serves many uses today.

The San Pedro Chapel, which sits on a hillside overlooking the Old Fort Lowell Neighborhood, is both a neighborhood icon and a national treasure. It was built by residents of the neighborhood in 1932 and served as their principal place of worship for decades. Today, this beautiful building is the site of many weddings and other events, such as neighborhood gatherings, historic lectures, art exhibits, parties, and memorials.

“Once they see it, most people planning a wedding area eager to reserve it for their special day,” said Linda Walker, the chapel rental coordinator.” They love its beauty, historic charm, and the fact that it can be rented for far less than many other wedding venues in Tucson.” Completely restored, the historic Chapel provides seating for 100 guests. The exposed beam ceiling, rustic details, and charming artwork provide an elegant and authentic setting for virtually any event.

The Adobe House, adjacent to the Chapel, is the perfect location for rehearsal dinners, family gatherings, and small meetings. This building provides a table that seats 16-18 with a cozy, corner fireplace. A separate support building provides a kitchen with refrigerator, dishwasher and prep area.

Unlike the typical wedding location, San Pedro Chapel can be rented for the entire day the ceremony takes place. There are also many decorations stored on site that can be used free of charge.

If you or someone you know is interested in renting the Chapel, contact Linda Walker at info@sanpedrochapel.com or (520) 302-9265.
