Too afraid to stand up to activist dribble, the church has now removed markers indicating George Washington's place in the congregation. There was never anyone present to answer questions anyway, so I suppose it doesn't matter.

Pohick Church has been restored to be as it was in the Colonial era. It has family boxes, rather than open pews, and it has a traditional high pulpit. Behind the altar there are plaques with the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten...More

If you're in the area, it's worth your time to visit this historic church. I'm always amazed when I consider that George Washington, a vestry member, and his family, traveled by horse/ buggy from the Mt. Vernon estate, even in snow, to regularly attend services...More
