Beautiful building and grounds, you can just visualize the history around you. Check the gravestones carefully, they are amazing! If you are there at noon-ish there is prayer time that you can join. Only lasts about 10 minutes, but a delightful way to spend some time the way some of our most famous history makers spent theirs. Pews are marked... More

This is a lovely historic church. You can see George Washington's, Martha Custis Washington's, and other famous patriots pews. The graveyard/cemetery is lovely and full of history as well. The church is occasionally open in the evenings for a concert series. If you have the time, it is worth a visit.

Attended the Sunday morning Eucharist while I was on vacation. A very welcoming congregation. Although a little more low church than I am used to the service was beautiful. A very pretty church too.

This was one of the places that you did not need a ticket to enjoy. The grounds were very beautiful and interesting to read all of the grave markers.

Free to visit, this is a very central piece of the Williamsburg history. There are usually volunteers who will give you a free tour.

My husband and I went to a Candlelight Pipe Organ Concert while at Colonial Williamsburg. It was the absolutely perfect ending note for our day. So atmospheric and lovely, it was fantastic. The music ranged from bright and lively to hauntingly elegant and beautiful.
