A Visit Back in Time

Liked: Beautiful grounds and location. Unchanged from when I attended back in the early 1960's. Disliked: Closed on week days.

Very traditional with choir & pastors in period dress. Excellent choice of Christmas songs. Lovely tradtional candlelight service with communion. Welcoming, friendly folks. A perfect way to celebrate Christ's birth. We attended the earlier 7:30 service -- getting too old to stay up for midnight services. Only dislike was finding parking!!

I've attended this church many times. It is a lovely colonial setting with friendly parishioners. Be sure to check out the cemetery in back where they have the tomb of the unknown Revolutionary soldier. Christmas Eve service is very beautiful.

My wife and I visited the Old Presbyterian Meeting House while taking a guided tour of Old Town Alexandria. Founded in 1772, the Old Presbyterian Meeting House is an historic and vibrant congregation in the heart of Old Town Alexandria. It is still open for church services.

This is an active church which dates from Colonial times. Members of the church dress in period clothes for special events and give tours and tell about the church. It is also a really caring group of people.

We were taken on a ghost tour to this place. I have never heard of this place and the famous colonial history that is here. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Revolutionary War is here, and so is George Wahington's doctor. I even managed to catch an orb in a couple pictures. Take a ghost tour and come... More

I went here with a group of historic house docents, and we all really enjoyed our time here! Don is a fountain of knowledge about the church, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone, especially if you're interested in history, graveyards, churches, or all of the above!

Amazing history - don't miss this site! I didn't visit the church, but wandered the grounds, and was taken aback by the history here.

Geocaching brought us to this spot and it was fascinating to see all the old graves, several of them Scots. Really interesting, worth a visit.
