It is worth a ten minute walk to see the grand old church interior. a short information brochure at the entrance explains the stained glass and the famous individuals who went to the church

On Sunday afternoons, there is a Patrick Henry performance--not to be missed. The events are performed by 5 or so men dressed in costumes of the times. There is not charge for the performance, which last about 30 minutes. Get there early.

The Rev. Wallace Adams-Riley oversees a very historic church right next to the State Capitol building on Grace St. Jefferson Davis and Robert E. Lee worshiped here. The building is beautiful inside with many very nice parishioners to welcome you if you are a first time visitor.

My kids took me here for Mother's Day, because they know how much I love history, while they just endure it. However, they all enjoyed this tour, esp. the reenactment of Patrick Henry's famous speech by our awesome tour guide, Mr. Chris. It's also a great spot to walk around the city, being sure to stop at the Proper Pie... More

One of the highlights of the visit was the Friday night Jazz... More

Did not notice a way for limited mobility folks yo get up the stairs. There are 2 handrails on the steps, but there are over a dozen steps. Pretty, but not special... More

I attended a Lenten lunch and service, a tradition for which St. Paul's is rightly well known. As a child, I sometimes attended Holy Week services there; the church has thoughtfully offered preaching and fellowship throughout Lent for over a hundred years. The message of the guest speaker was encouraging, challenging us to love perfectly, as God does, loving all... More
