This is a beautiful church! There are still some original pieces left. They did of course remove the plagues but I had got a pamphlet from Virginia visitor center that said George Washington’s pew was number 60. Well the pews are still marked so you...More

This is a beautiful church full of history. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and attentive. Short tour but a lot of information. It doesn’t cost anything but donations are appreciated.

We came for Sunday Service, and stayed after to get the tour. Tours are free, and done by deacons of the church. If you're a guest and going to service be sure to let them know, because they'll direct you to sit in George Washington's...More

This is real living history. The tour here is led by docents from the church, and they are very knowledgeable about its history and the culture at the time of George Washington's family worship here. Definitely worth the time, and be sure to bring some...More

This is the home church of George Washington. You can literally go and sit in his pew! And it's free!! Doesn't take long to do, but it is high value. Very meaningful. Don't miss it.

This is the church that George Washington attended from time to time, riding up from Mt. Vernon. Robert E. Lee also attended. You have to remember that Virginia is the South -- so all the plusses and minuses of our history are present here. If...More

Radical leftists running the church wish to erase history. Utterly shameful that the first President of the United States who attended services here for 20 years would be disrespected. I will never set foot in this church... More
