“It is a working church, not a park attraction”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Amazing history took place in and around this little church. Definitely visit the cemetery while you are in the area.

However, remember that this is still a working church and not a park attraction and set expectations (and attitudes) accordingly. The volunteers do a very nice job, if you hit the timing right and aren't in the middle of another tour group.

“A "Great American" Cemetery”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 23, 2013

Highly recommend a visit to this historic burial ground where remnants from the birth of the U.S.A. can be seen in their final resting place. Guided tours are available with the price of admission, only $2.00.

“Interesting, short visit”

We went there as part of the "Walking tour" company. The church itself is nice, interesting history story. Good for families and children.

“Historical and Charming”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 13, 2013

Wonderful to be steeped in history. Listen to the docent tell the stories of who sat where in olden times. beautiful wooden Church. Do not look for this spot to give you a break from the heat. No airconditioning in this historical spot.
