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

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.
