“We attended a Sunday service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 27, 2013

A church attended by George washington, Robert E. Lee and other early American notables. A church member gave us a great discussion of the church history and facts after the service. The church yard is a pleasant place to rest

“Sit with history”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 24, 2013

Interesting church. Quite white and plain inside and quite charming. Pews laid out so some would have had backs to altar. Great to sit in the Washington and Robert E Lee family pews.

“Open Seating with Washington, Roosevelt & Churchill”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 22, 2013

Most tour gudes first words are "don't touch anything"..Imagine being invited to sit in the same pew as these famous men did and have your picture taken? The well informed docent will issue this invitation after a most informative talk about the church. The whole town of Alexandria is a gem, but starting here sets the tone for the rest of your visit.

“Worth a look”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2013

We stopped by here and were impressed with the stark simplicity of the church yard and the sanctuary. The staff were very welcoming and overall sense of the place is one of a place that has been held as sacred for hundreds of years. Have a look

“Great piece of History... but”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 15, 2013

Beautiful church... Tour guide (now called a docent???) was quite nice, but was weaving a lot of Democrat policy into the briefing.
