As you would expect, this is a beautiful colonial era church that was fully restored about 30 years ago but retains its historical aesthetics. As with our visit to Touro Synagogue, the tour guide really made the history of the church come alive. She was an active parishioner, too, which gave a real authenticity to the information she shared. Fascinating... More

Not to be missed if American and British history is of interest to you. Some famous people worshipped here and their presence is commemorated in pew signs and fabulous stained glass windows.

Loved the wood finish. The white weather board was well maintained and the church itself in a higher imposing position over the harbour. We didn't go in but appreciated the outside on our walking tour.

My father was rector from 1954-1971 - the church as been thoroughly updated structurally and restored with handicapped access. The tour is wonderfully informative with volunteers, the campus including the Mia Lin designed Queen Anne Square, Honeyman Hall, the Goelet garden and original cemetery looked fantastic. It was a great moment to revisit an important 18th century building and a... More

For a voluntary, suggested donation of $5 (yes, that's $5!), you get an exceptional tour of a very historic structure! Our docent, Harle Tinney, was an exceptional guide explaining the fascinating history of the church! A highlight was getting to sit in the pew used by both George Washington and Queen Elizabeth during their respective visits! The stained glass windows... More

I have walked passed this church hundreds of times and finally went in to check it out. WOW, what an amazing church it is. They don't make them like it anymore. You should def plan on a 1/2 hour to walk around the inside.

The church is beautiful and the tour was short, but interesting. There were lots of little tid- bits of history that were fun to learn. Two glorious Tiffany stained glass windows!

What a beautiful place that has seen its list of historical figures. The staff provides free tours of the church with interesting historical facts about the church and the people who have been there including President Washington and Queen Elizabeth. It is a must see piece of history.
