This is near the Confederacy White House and Confederacy Museum. No Admission.

Like other commentators, it has a lovely organ and very beautiful stained glass windows. A... More

Loved this church. Beautiful pipe organ. The windows are art. The ceiling is also very beautiful and inspiring. There is a sweet little garden on the side with a fountain.

If you are visiting Richmond, don't miss a visit to St. Paul's. This was Robert E. Lee's home church. It has a fantastic organ and beautiful stained glass windows.

Wonderful stained glass all around and the Organ upstairs is amazing. It must be pretty to attend services here- working church.

But even if you don't want to go in for a prayer, it is worthwhile to visit this church with nice decorated windows. A visit offers also a moment of silence and cooling in the heat of the day.

My sisters and I stopped by St Paul's church right after touring the Richmond Capitol. Wow! The stained glass windows are simple gorgeous! It was fun finding the places (pews) where famous people from history sat.

Thank BBleck
