While we didn't expect much when we arrived and looked at the outside of this church, the stain-glass-windows by Tiffany makes this a hidden treasure well worth seeing. Our guide said the tours may soon stop, which would be a great loss.

Many of my ancestors and other rellies are buried at Blandford, and I have visited many times since a child. Some good ole boys I know even keep up the graves of our Confederate dead, including my great grandfather, for no remuneration. Very moving.......

I am a local and have been here countless times. Lunch breaks, quiet walks, solitude and history. Still visit frequently. If you are going to visit Petersburg for civil war history, this is a must see.

This beautiful Church resides in the Historic Blandford Cemetery burial to many famous people and soldiers who fought for our freedom. Well worth the few dollars for admission. Make your reservation this weekend!

The Tiffany windows are what you want to see from the inside with the sun coming in. The oldest grave is 1702

Opened by Thomas Jefferson's father and chock full of Tiffany Stained Glass windows, a tour of Blandford Church is a treat for any history buff. The cemetery is massive, and shockingly beautiful, and has veterans from literally every war the US has fought in. Go...More
