I love how clean simple and light the interior is for the service and the gift shop is cute and the courtyard and garden-cemetery is very peaceful and zen so I often bring my lunch to sit outside and eat there to relax.

That God dwelleth here. Others go to be seen by others. Offerings are made and hymns sung. Some attendees are more repentant than others.

This is a must see. This is one of the oldest churches in US. It is well maintained and volunteers are very knowledgeable of the history. You can even sit in George Washington’s family pew box. Be sure to walk through the cemetery.

Radical left wing revisionists, erasing and disrespecting our history including General George Washington. Apparently this is because (as was accepted at the time) he had slaves. Never mind he freed them all. Never mind... More

There is street parking, We walked from our hotel. Another option is using the free trolley that runs up and down King Street and walking about two blocks.
