About Chapel Of The Chimes, Oakland
Chapel of the Chimes Oakland is truly a place like no other. Originally designed in 1909, this Oakland Historical Landmark Building has long been considered one of the most beautiful historic buildings in all of California. Featuring stunning natural stonework, polished marble, delicate sculptures and mosaic-tiled floors, it evokes renaissance beauty and serenity at every turn.
Chapel of the Chimes was founded in 1909 as a crematory and columbarium in Oakland, California. The present building dates largely from a 1928 redevelopment based on the designs of the architect Julia Morgan. The Moorish- and Gothic-inspired interior is a maze of small rooms featuring ornate stonework, statues, gardens, fountains and mosaics. The name “chapel” refers primarily to the style of interior design, as it is not a traditional cemetery chapel building. ~ Wikipedia
