Walked through with family that lives in the area. The church was closed, so a little sad we couldn't take a tour. This place is huge. Super interesting just to stroll and read head stones. If you decide to walk through, I suggest good shoes...More

Fifteen Tiffany windows with a poignant purpose, to honor the Confederate States war dead. In this day, it is a hard thing to understand, but the women who made this monument in an abandoned church were wives, daughters, mothers and sweethearts of Confederate soldiers. Thirty...More

The Tiffany windows are absolutely beautiful. There is so much history in this building and the grounds. A must see for all visitors to the Petersburg area. A few years ago, we attended a wedding in the Church and it was so romantic.
