Must stop and see

It's a beautiful church, inside and out, but it's the many items of the confederacy that brings visiting travelers.

St. Pauls Episcopal church is great for visiting, the people are friendly, but if you're really going to attend an authentic episcopal service this is not the church. The services just don't have the formality they used to years ago.

This church has so much to offer the visitor. It is rich in history as well as being beautiful to look at. Take a minute to sit and just soak up the exquisite stained glass windows and reverent atmosphere

Lovely Anglican church with a rich southern history. The music program -- the choir and guitar ensembles -- are especially wonderful.

My wife and I visited St. Paul's Church today. It's a beautiful church in the heart of downtown Richmond. All the stained glass windows were made by Tiffany's. They are priceless works of art.

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
