“Beautiful Old School Church”
Reviewed 12 April 2012

If you want a great view into what a building looked like from the 1700s go here. The woodwork and architecture is very nice. I visit the church every few years. It is something you should definitely see if you are visiting the city. The graveyard includes many famous people. Check it out.

“Well preserved, interesting place.”
Reviewed 5 April 2012

The church was empty when we went. The guide (Tish, I think) was nice and very informative. You could tell she was passionate about the church and it's history. Neat to sit in the pews used by Ben Franklin, George Washington, etc.

“Amazing History”
Reviewed 18 March 2012

This is an amazing church with amazing history. The guide had incredible stories to tell about the people of the past and who sat where and what they did. He talked a lot about the original decor and fixtures. It was fascinating and humbling. I would highly recommend. It is close to all other historical attractions and doesn't take much time to go through.
