Walking tour

this church was one of the stops on our walking tour. enjoyed the air conditioning. Amazing that it stood through a lot of turmoil and weather earthquakes and is still standing.

I thought it so cool that George Washington worshipped in pew 43. I liked learning from our independent tour guide that each pew was assigned to a family and they could kind of do what they wanted with it. Some little design features had been there since the 1700's. Worth visiting especially if you know what to look for.

What a treat! We had a great conversation with a sweet church member who was working the lobby. We heard all about the organ, their choir training, and how the choir was getting ready to travel to Canterbury England, Spain, and somewhere else to sing! The church is GORGEOUS inside. There is a really neat cemetery. It's on two sides... More

We were standing across the street from the church, just thinking where we wanted to go and Margaret came across to ask if she could be of assistance. Very nice and so welcoming.

I'm biased, I am episcopalian. I love this church, Washington himself visited this church. Lots of Tiffany stained glass and they typical mystique that our church offers. I did miss the 7:30 communion, but would love to go back and worship in this place.

A great stain glass of Michael the Arc Angel at the front of the church is worth the trip in my estimation. Make this a must see when you tour the churches in the area

We made a quick stop into this church, and it is absolutely gorgeous. I'm glad it was open, as a few other churches in the area were closed/locked, surprisingly enough.
