Beautiful old church with amazing stained glass windows. A lot was history. Our guide was very good. This is our second visit and enjoyed just as much as first visit

This had been recommended by one of the staff at a Virginia Visitor Center and it was certainly worth the effort to go here! Just the cemetery alone would be worth a visit, but the Church was an added treasure. The beautiful stained glass windows were designed by Tiffany and each one is dedicated by one of the States of...

Definitely make a stop here if you are in Petersburg. Take the tour of the church. The Tiffany windows aren't like anything you have ever seen. After the tour we took a short walk around the graveyard. Exiting the graveyard, we passed the portion where 30,000 unknown soldiers had been reinterred. A very somber feeling. Anyone who loves history would... More

The tour of Blandford Church and Cemetery will take you far beyond the experience of the art of Tiffany. If you like colonial history, here's an early parish and the war of the revolution. If you like civil war history, you are standing on the coveted high ground. If you like the art of Tiffany in stained glass, it's magnificent.... More

The windows of the Blandford Church are still the original Tiffany Stained Glass that were commissioned after the Civil War. They are lovely. Take the guided tour just to listen to the full story. You will feel history all around you.

Beautiful old church with wonderful stained glass. We enjoyed our stop on our Civil War trip. Seems like the Arlington for the Confederate soldiers...like 30,000 buried here. Guide gave an excellent talk.

This church has stained glass windows by Tiffany-most of them represent each of the states of the confederacy. The guide explained the content and symbolism of each one and he did a very detailed description of each window. This is a must see for history and architecture lovers! The graveyard has 30,000 cofederate soldiers buried in it. A must stop... More

When touring the church and cemetery I felt I had stepped into history and shared both the horror of the battles and the quiet peace of the victims who were taken by the wars. Beyond the lessons of history, touch and feel the magnificence of the Tiffany stained glass window.

This is a beautiful old church. Unfortunately for us we were unable to get a tour due to a concert being held the day we arrived but we were welcome to tour the grounds. The Tiffany glass windows are beautiful from the outside. I wish someone would keep the graveyard in better condition, it was very overgrown with weeds and... More
