Go first to the Visitor Center just inside the cemetery gates, pay a small fee, a get an in-depth tour of the fantastic Tiffany windows which are like no others that Tiffany ever made. A brief tour in the cemetery is included, but you can explore on your own afterwards.

Must see if you are in Petersburg. The Tiffany windows are fantastic and the history is very interesting

I have officiated at a funeral at Blandford Cemetery. Respectfully, It is a very neat place and has a lot of significance in the surrounding community. Blandford is the type of place I'd like to have hours to walk around simply to take in the history of those buried there.

We decided to take my family from Michigan to visit one of the most beautiful churches with the beautiful Tiffany windows. Learning and sharing the history of the church, the windows and the significance of each. Sharing the details of the burial plots in addition to the trials and tribulations of this historic landmark. I would highly recommend this to... More

We had a very informative tour of the church and the cemetery. Our guide gave great details about the individual windows and about Tiffany's relationship with the church. It is a beautiful church and very worth the visit!

Well out of town and probably not worth the extra effort. Burials of some of the many casualties of the Petersburg Civil War campaign

We were the only ones on the first tour so it was as if we had our own private tour of this historically beautiful place. Our tour guide was just a wealth of knowledge and had so many stories of the people that are buried there and the things that happened in the church and the petersburg area. The church... More

Having seen the stained glass windows in European cathedrals, I can certainly say that these are among the best I have ever seen. The attention to detail, the colors used, and the subject matter are just phenomenal. Blandford Church has a rich history, and our tour guide was quite knowledgeable. After the tour, we wandered around the cemetery looking at... More

The church is lovely, and the windows are beautiful. Unfortunately, we were there on a rainy day and didn't get to see them in their full glory. Access to the church is over an uneven brick walk, which may be difficult for some.
