Visiting this church evokes images of our forefathers sitting here praying for the well being of our new nation. Preserved as it was all those years ago. It doesn't have to be fancy or ornate to be beautiful. So much of our history has passed...More

historical and beautiful. A must see for history buffs. The baptismal was brought over from England and you can sit in George Washington's pew. Delightful

The church is amazing. It’s hard to believe that it continues today as it has since the 18th century - as a church. We came with a walking tour and were lucky to come at a time when someone who was affiliated with the church...More
