This church occupies a central position in the town both physically and historically and both Washington and Robert E. lee worshipped here. The pews are separated in the box style and a visit is highly recommended.

This is a beautiful church full of history. The tour guide was so knowledgeable and attentive. Short tour but a lot of information. It doesn’t cost anything but donations are appreciated.

As we walk down King Street, we always stop in to visit Christ Church on North Washington Street. Admission is free, but the tour is educational. It’s a thought provoking experience for us to know that we sit in the same pew that our first...More

We came for Sunday Service, and stayed after to get the tour. Tours are free, and done by deacons of the church. If you're a guest and going to service be sure to let them know, because they'll direct you to sit in George Washington's...More

Radical leftists running the church wish to erase history. Utterly shameful that the first President of the United States who attended services here for 20 years would be disrespected. I will never set foot in this church... More
