I don't know if these operating hours are correct...

We were there well past 2pm, so I don't think the operating hours posted here are correct...not sure. Interesting and quick.

An historic old church, with the individual boxes for the long-dead parishioners. Lots of history here, and an interesting place for a wedding. Can be quite hot in summer, though.

As was Desmond Tutu, any from the British Royal Family and filled with locals. The tour, about 1/2 hour and $5, is very interesting and a good overview of religion in Colonial times. Highly recommended.

Most stones are so worn it is difficult to read!! Inside the church the pews are in the original design as boxes, and you when visiting you will learn the... More

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.
