The famous church isn't the reason to visit Richmond's East side- it's actually the 19th century neighborhood filled with brick row houses that are federal, greek revival and Italianate! Park the car and stroll the streets especially the St. John's chuch block and the 2600...More

This is worth a visit to hear the re-enactment of Patrick Henry's "Give me liberty or give me death" speech.
a good place to take your children for a hands-on history lesson. It has beautiful grounds where you can walk around and the architecture is absolutely beautiful. I nice visit for couples and families.
Beautiful architecture and to be able to walk the grounds was really fantastic. So much history from the founding fathers to the civil war in a 10 block area.
Patrick Henry gave his famous speech here, and the grounds alone are worth a visit — the colonial church building and accompanying graveyard are well worth a visit. Colonial Richmond at its best.
