Owner description: Bruton Parish Church is open daily to visitors with or without a Colonial Williamsburg admission ticket. A donation of one dollar per person is gratefully accepted to go toward upkeep of the church and churchyard. This is the third building in the history of Bruton Parish, in continuous use since 1715. All are welcome to attend a brief service of noonday prayer during the week, and Sunday services, held at 7:30, 9:15, and 11:15 am and 5:30 pm. Bruton Parish Church is an active congregation of the Episcopal Church, therefore we close for tours during weddings, funerals or scheduled services.

“A piece of American history.”
Reviewed October 13, 2012 via mobile

This is a must do if in Williamsburg. The church and graves are very old and pay tribute to those who came to America to build a new Country and the sacrifices that were made. You do not need to pay the Williamsburg admission and the church only asks for a kind donation of $1.00 to help in the restoration...which is currently in progress.

“See where American forefathers worshipped”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

This church is unassuming in appearance, but it was fascinating to see where key American Revolution figures such as George Washington and Thomas Jefferson once worshipped. It's in the Colonial Williamsburg settlement but I don't believe you need a pass to get in - they just ask for a $1 donation.

Unfortunately they were doing some construction to the church so the front view was obstructed by scaffolding, but once inside we were greeted by enthusiastic docents. One gentleman told us a bit of history about the church, and what's interesting is that it's still an active church with weekly services!

“Loved learning the history of the church”
Reviewed October 9, 2012

Volunteers on site to explain and answer questions. You could take your time inside and even sit where Jefferson and others did when they went to church there.
