“Little-Known Gem”
Reviewed October 9, 2011

Every President since James Madison has attended services at St. John’s Church and has sat in the Presidents Pew. This is a beautiful church just north of the White House. We stood at Lincoln’s Pew in the back of the Church and tried to image him walking from the White House, across the park, and sneaking into the service.

“Island of serenity 1 block from The White House”
Reviewed September 23, 2011

My church group took a tour of washington, D.C., in late September (off-season). This is an island of serenity 1 block across President's Park from The White House. Every President has worshiped at this house of worship. This is a great place for prayer or mediation. Step back in time to a simplier time with no distractions. This house of worship is open to the public, except for special occassions.
