A cute little church.

This church is just one of many colonial attractions in Williamsburg. I recommend everyone to stop by during your travels of Williamsburg.

Nice church , they have a cemetery you can visit next to the church where they were buried some of the most important people of the town. They also offered a concert at some time during the afternoon. It is open until later than the other sites in the park.

Beautiful 300 year old church. George Washington worshipped here! There were church members there to speak with tourists and explain the history of the church.

There is no trip to Williamsburg without seeing the Bruton Church. It is a simple Church, yet filled with much history. There happened to be a service while we were there, so we had to wait outside until it ended. We looked at the cemetary that is located right on the grounds. Upon entering you are greeted with guides who... More

I love being able to walk in and see the names of our founding fathers on the pews. You can sit in the pews George Washington and Thomas Jefferson sat. I love the history of it.

The charm of this church is found in its history, certainly not its doctrine of works and baptismal regeneration

The history is impressive, the building is physically cool in the summer, and no visit to Colonial Williamsburg would be complete with a stop in the oldest continuous church. The graveyard is full of interesting stories and is not at all creepy. There are many events in this still active church like musical performances. Stop in and see what is... More

This is one of the oldest buildings in Williamsburg. They still have services here every Sunday and beautiful weddings if you are fortunate to book your wedding here. The cemetery is also very interesting.

Old fashioned, but I enjoy that. The cemetery dates from the 1600s and the church has been continually meeting since the 1700s. Old fashioned evensong the last time I was there. You can go bright and early at 7:15 am, but I think I prefer the 9:15 with singing. You can see pretty much how it was when the Colonial... More
