This church dates back to the 1600s and many notable patriots worshipped here. Guides are very passionate and informative - do it

The “tour” involves going inside the church and sitting on a pew as the church representative gives a historical overview. No actual “tour”. At $8/adult and $7/child over seven years old, I wouldn’t recommend it.

Amazing historic 1747 church with really old tombstones littered on the grounds. They have Edgar Allan Poe’s mom, a signer of the Declaration of Independence and the first U.S. Marshall buried here.

This is not only a spot of Richmond history, but a major part in birth of our nation. There is a small charge for a guided tour. There is a nice little gift shop.

While is fun to go here to partake of a reenactment of Patrick Henry delivering his famous "Give me liberty or give me death" speech, the church is also a nice place to worship. My grandmother,her Cornish born mother, and Cornish grandparents worshipped here. Buried...More

This place felt a bit off the beaten track but we were glad we found it. We took the tour and felt like we had stepped back in history. Worth a visit.
