“Remarkably constant and cared for over time!”
Reviewed September 24, 2012

Was able to hear Handel's Messiah here at Christmas by candlelight and now simply enjoy returning for church services that remind me of the continuity in purpose and peaceful reflection.

“A slice of American History”
Reviewed September 22, 2012

Almost every sitting president since George Washington, and a least one British Prime Minister (Winston Churchill) has attended a service here. Robert E. Lee bought a pew here also. Take the free tour if you are in the area.

“Christ Church -- Good enough for George Washington, Robert E. Lee and me”
Reviewed September 20, 2012

If you want to witness where President George Washington and General Robert E. Lee worshiped, this is the Church. Magnificently maintained and there are plaques recognizing both Washington and Lee. Have worshiped there when visiting our son in Alexandria. Recommend worshipping with friends or relatives. Grounds have antique headstones. Parking is on the street.

“Wonderful tour and historic details”
Reviewed September 12, 2012

It was a great tour given by a member of the church. Lots of interesting details about life back then and of course on Washington and Robert E. Lee

“Historical visit”
Reviewed September 3, 2012

We strolled in right before the Church was closing for the day. A very informative guide gave us a history lesson concerning the church. Robert E. Lee and George Washington worshiped here and many other dignitaries and attended services here. It only takes about 10-15 minutes to visit, but it was well worth it. Don't forget to leave a donation.
