We toured this chapel and the cemetery on a cloudy, rainy day which seemed fitting for the drive thru and visit to church. The stained glass Tiffany windows representing sourthern states was a well done touch to a historic; later stops at Appomatox only refreshed the histoic last ditch efforts of Robt E Lee.

The Blandford Church and Cemetery are a must see for anyone visiting the area. The church with it's Tiffany windows is magnificent. The cemetery is truly a historical treasure and the tour of the church is conducted by very knowledgeable local folks.

Having lived in Petersburg all of our lives, we shamefully had never visited until one year on the garden tour. So glad we did. The guide was excellant with knowledge of the history. When you pass by, you have no idea of the beautiful Tiffany windows from the outside as they have been covered to protect them. Such a valuable... More

One of Petersburg's finest attractions! Awesome ancient cemetery with a wonderful church that dates to 1735! Louis Comfort Tiffany stained glass windows are national treasures. The Progress Index paper reported that Petersburg is going to shut down it'shistorical sites due to budget reasons. Visit this soon!

The entire story of the 1700's Anglican Church that graces now the cemetery of about 50,000 confederate civil war soldiers and other founding families is amazing. The original windows and story behind each of the 13 are intriguing. A must visit!

This tour is well worth the cost. Our tour guide was so knowledgeable and personable. She did a fantastic job of describing the Tiffany glass windows and making you aware of all the detail and color. her historical knowledge of the are and the war was remarkable! Touring the cemetaery was very humbling. Don't miss this attraction!

Blandford Cemetery is the final home to both northern and southern soldiers who have their life for their cause. True patriots of the time. The tour is something else and the. church stunning with the stained glass windows. Many who find controversy today over the civil war should visit this historic site and see that both Union and southern soldiers... More
