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

We visited on a business trip as the Liverpool Anglican diocese is twinned with Richmond Episcopal diocese there are also plans for St Paul's to be twinned with Liverpool Anglican Cathedral - our two communities have enjoyed a number of exchange visits and we were made very welcome. One of the highlights of the visit was the Friday night Jazz... More

Stopped in on our way to the car in a drizzle. Services were being held do we did not get to see the sanctuary except through side doors. 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

This church is absolutely filled with amazing relics from history, the pew where Robert E Lee worshiped from ... Plaques, Tiffany windows ... It is an incredibly beautiful sanctuary. The best in the city.

For history buffs of the Civil War, this is a must see! Beyond the neo-classical façade (just next to the State Capitol), doors open to a vast space illuminated by stained glass, and plaques on the walls recounting the deaths from the civil war. Jefferson Davis was in a pew there when he learned Richmond "had fallen", and you can... More

We went to St. Paul's for Lessons & Carols on Christmas Eve and it was a wonderful, well-down, classic treat. Surprised to see it so sparsely attended. As visitors from out of town, we thought it would be packed. What's up, Richmond? This is a treasure!
