“Beautiful church!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 5, 2012

Very scenic and historic for Virginia City. We loved everything in V City, wish it was bigger. Yet the small size and this church, among other things, gives a lot of ambiance and history. Go see it all!

“peace and tranquility”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 30, 2012

You are going to need a break after the (nice) craziness of main street Virginia city. This is the place . This beautiful peaceful refuge is just off Main street and worth the visit.On a crowded day parking can be tight. We ended up parking for the short time in the church along the wall to the left of the church.

“Beautiful Church”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 27, 2012

Didn't go inside this trip, but we've been there in the past. It's all wood inside and is just lovely. Even if you aren't the religious type, you can enjoy the architecture and the skill with which it was built.
