It was a beautiful spring afternoon. The steeple and the gardens called us off the road. After a friendly greeting and the purchase of the clerks favorite book, 'Stuff Every American Should Know' we meandered in. Pew 58 invited me to sit. With bowed head I gave thanks for my struggles and pain. I eves dropped on a tour. To... More

I loved this church where the Founding Father's worshipped. It is just beautiful inside and it was amazing to see the pew where George Washington prayed. The Christ Church cemetary is where several Founding Father's , including Benjamin Franklin are buried. It should be noted that the cemetary and the church are in different locations but both are well worth... More

The view was amazing. The Great Hall also located in this area *Free entrance if you come with an Oxford Student :)The old fashioned building makes its look so historical and you'll never be bored, just getting around. Instead of visiting at night, better to catch the view on the day. As I don't want to feel creepy because I... More

The stories told by the gave markers were riveting! It is convenient and a small payment to look at history written more than 200 years ago was very special!

I have visited this chuch a number of times with visitors to the area. With several founders buried there and very helpful staff to tell you about who attended the church, where they sat, etc you might think you've seen enough. Do not miss the graceyard tour! It is so interesting!

This little church is untouched by time; it's magical to see a place where founding fathers might have gone for sermon.

This is an active congregation that maintains and offer tours of the building. They often have their historian on-site to answer questions about its famous members and the roles they played in shaping US history.

We attended a beautiful service on Easter. The congregation is warm and friendly, the pasture gave a perfect sermon and we witnessed the baptism of seven babies. What a perfect Easter

The church pews had names of worshipers on plates stamped into the side of each pew. I thought that was very unusual and interesting! The cemetery was serene and I saw Ben Franklin's burial site. I visited here in 2005.
