Restored church with guided tours and a small interactive museum. Presents a view of early colonial life and times on the great neck of Virginia and information on the Carter Family and their extensive holdings. Must see if you are into architecture or history

We arrived after hours and so were not able to get inside the church or museum. However we did walk around the grounds and were impressed with the beauty and symmetry of the church architecture.

Very cool to look at and see from the inside and out. Take a walk through the cemetery to see all the old headstones before you leave
