The history really comes to life when you see names like Washing ton on the pews. I have been to Bruton in England - the connection is just lovely.

This church has some very interesting artifacts on display and the guides were very helpful telling you about everything. They have a monument out front that appears to have a man and dog face etched in it. They do ask for donations when you go in because it is still an operating church.

Beautiful church with very interesting cemetery grounds. We had the pleasure of enjoying one of their candlelight concerts there with very talented harpists. The people running the program were very friendly and welcoming-and the overall feel with the ambiance of music and candlelight was divine!

This building still functions as an active church and is open to the public for Sunday worship. Tours are available at any other time. Donations are accepted, but not required. There are also concerts some evenings. Check the Colonial Williamsburg guide for daily information. The church also has a gift shop in the Colonial area. It has some nice things... More

A look back at the history of English style religion. The church is asteer with smell of old wood and the seats will make you sit up straight. I meet a costumed Pastor outside and had an interesting conversation with him.

Definitely one of the city's Highlights. To see how people lived and worshipped in those times was fascinating.

I must admit that my impression is colored by the fact that during my student days, I took organ lessons here and sang in the choir. However, what struck me immediately during my recent visit is that how little it has changed over the years. It's impressive that this building and its parish has been in existence since colonial times,... More

If walking around in Williamsburg does not take you bake in time the visit to this church will. The church is still very active for all ceremonies and should be respected when visiting.

What a beautiful church inside and out, the pipe organ is wonderful, the graveyard around the church is interesting and interesting people are buried there. The church has name plates and tells you where and who sat where.
