It is a nice place to visit. However, I would not put it as one of the top sites to see. It looks like your average church with a little bit of history to it. It is free to visit as well.

This is a wonderful historic church. It is located on the former property of the R.E. Lee Camp #1, Confederate Veterans. The inside is lovely with its stained glass windows and old organ. You can almost feel the ghosts of Confederate Veterans here.

This is an attractive, old style church building on the grounds for the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. There is really nothing special inside. What makes it special is that it is there to honor the fallen Confederates, and marks the spot where Civil War...More

This place is one of the best-hidden secrets of Richmond even though it's on VMFA's property...you can easily miss it. You have to look for it (not really) ... you just need to know exactly where. It's on the side that faces Grove Ave. and...More

Beautiful Chapel directly behind the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts. Check hours if you want to see inside - grounds and building can be seen anytime. Also near Monument St
