We stopped in on a sunday afternoon after the sunday services were over just to check the place out. We were greeted by a very nice older gentleman who had just started a tour of the church. The church is pretty small, it isn't a grand cathedral, but is very nice and quite pretty. What it may lack in size it makes up for in history - George Washington used to own a pew at this church and it is still there with the original woodwork, and you can sit in his pew, Robert E. Lee used to attend services here, and Winston Churchill sat in the Washington pew with FDR to pray after Pearl Harbor. The tour is free and lasts about 10 minutes.
