“Active Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 3, 2014

This is an active church which dates from Colonial times. Members of the church dress in period clothes for special events and give tours and tell about the church. It is also a really caring group of people.

“Great history I never knew about”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2014

We were taken on a ghost tour to this place. I have never heard of this place and the famous colonial history that is here. The Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Revolutionary War is here, and so is George Wahington's doctor. I even managed to catch an orb in a couple pictures. Take a ghost tour and come here at night.

“Interesting History!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 6, 2014

I went here with a group of historic house docents, and we all really enjoyed our time here! Don is a fountain of knowledge about the church, and I would certainly recommend it to anyone, especially if you're interested in history, graveyards, churches, or all of the above!

“Be sure to see the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier from the Revolutionary War”

Amazing history - don't miss this site! I didn't visit the church, but wandered the grounds, and was taken aback by the history here.

“An interesting old cemetery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 17, 2013

Geocaching brought us to this spot and it was fascinating to see all the old graves, several of them Scots. Really interesting, worth a visit.
