This is a fine historic Anglican church. It is independent of Colonial Williamsburg. They suggest a donation of $1 per person. We donated $5 for two in order to support the church and history. It is a very pretty church built in the style of Old North Church in Boston. I is staffed by knowledgeable volunteers. Many luminaries of our... More

Another stop for history lovers! Staff very knowledgeable. They still hold services here. Awesome to know Washington, Jefferson and many other greats worshipped here. My kids got to ring the noon church bell. One of the same bells that was rung on July 4, 1776! What an awesome experience.

Awesome view of the past! The artifacts were truly revealing the way the people of the time worshipped and celebrated their religious God.

We have always loved CC, the overall atmosphere, entertainment, service and food. All was excellent except the food. The sweet potato muffins and spoonbread are still so tasty. It is a shame they no longer make the slaw. The main course was okay, not the top quqlity we remember, the cheesecake excellent. It is not quite the same as we... More

It was from this church originally built in 1715, and now restored, that Rev. W.A.R. Goodwin had the idea for the restoration of Colonial Williamsburg, which he sold to John D. Rockerfeller. The church is open and functioning daily. There is an organ recital many evenings. The inside is a classic 1700 church. The bell tower is original and was... More

The church is free with a suggested donation toward its preservation. It is still a functioning church and it is it's parishioners that volunteer their time to answer your questions. Hard to believe but you are standing where George Washington, James Madison, Thomas Jefferson,, Patrick Henry and many others once stood! AMAZING!
