This church is rich in history and great people. Whether in town for a short time or a lifetime this a welcoming and open church. Our daughter was baptized there and they also have a child care room for small children.

ZION EPISCOPAL CHURCH CEMETARY IS A GREAT PLACE to learn about some of our country;s history. There are several members of George Washington and his brother Chrales in the cementery. The reading of the monuments was educating !

A number of George Washington's family members are buried here. The cemetery is well taken care of which is so good to see.

I can't say enough about how much I benefit from periodically visiting Charles Town & digging deeper and deeper into what was going on during the middle 19th Century. I love visiting on a summer weekday, when I am nearly always alone with my deep...More

I went on my own, no guide or brochure. The cemetery located in central Charles Town, WV was empty the day I visited...quiet and peaceful. Wondering through, I found bits of history were on every tombstone, several with "Washington" chiseled into them. Worth a visit...More

If your in to history and reading old grave stones this is the place to go. Some of the stones will give you a breef history of the people that came before us.

Most interesting to wander around and ponder the lives of pre-20th century people buried here. A huge number of George Washington's relatives lie in this cemetery. Though I haven't seen it, I believe a comprehensive listing of all burials has been made.

Geocaching brought me to this restful spot. Lots of history laid out before me. The lawns were well maintained and the headstones were made of excellent quality stone, so they're very readable.

Walked around this cemetery just to see who was buried here. It was on the Charles Town Ghost Tour as well and is a scary place to be at night
