“Magnificent Old Church”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 23, 2012

I went here to listen to my son's choir. It was like stepping into the 18th century.

“Take your time”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

I was in a bit of a hurry and did not have time to linger and really enjoy many of the sites. Christ Church is one site that I wish I had more time to spend to learn about the church, and of course, its historical and famous members.

“Religious Freedom”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

Visit this church to get a feel for the basis of our tenants for religious freedom in the USA. See Ben Franklin's pew, and think of how this church has influenced our life today.

“Nice Stop to Make”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 22, 2012

It's an interesting place to pop into while you're walking around the historical area. You can sit in the pew that George Washington sat in, which is pretty darned cool, I think. Beautiful building, too.

“Worth a short visit - pretty and historical”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 18, 2012

This is a free site, not too crowded. It has some interesting history and is also just a lovely church. The first Episcopal Church in the US, if I recall correctly, and a lot of the founding fathers attended there.
