We were on a time constraint so we did not do a full tour but did stroll the grounds and talk with the period-dressed employees on duty. They were all overly helpful and friendly and the gift store was nice and reasonable priced.

This church dates back to the 1600s and many notable patriots worshipped here. Guides are very passionate and informative - do it
