The church of George Washington is smaller than I expected, but no less impressive. There is no way to capture the feeling of connection with our country's past but to simply stand in awe of everything this location embodies.
Fabulous setting to begin your married life! 37 years (+2 days) after the groom's parents wed there, their youngest son and his beautiful bride took their vows in front of their families packed into the historic church.
Every detail was perfect, the minister was especially...More
Had the good fortune to stop in and get hear about this amazing structure from Michelle....actually got to sit in the same pew as George Washington....Michelle was incredibly personable and a full of interesting facts about this still functioning church....definitely worth a stop if you...More
So I'm used to old UK churches with some going back to 1100 etc. This was beautifully simple by comparison. It's kind of strange sitting in George Washingtons pew ! And knowing a lot of the Declaration of Independence signatories worshipped and are buried here....More
This is a must see. Generally, this is in many ways just an old church but when you walk-in, pay attention to the marble slabs inside the church. These are actual graves of church members. Ask one of the docents to tell the story of...More
After walking over, I was disappointed to learn that we couldn't go inside without paying $5 per person. It was not a huge church and wouldn't have taken long to view. There was no guided tour that I was aware of...just 5 bucks to go...More
It doesn't take too long to see this gem but it's well worth the $5 admission. Just don't be surprised when you don't find Franklin's grave, it's in the church's graveyard, not on site like several others that you'll see both inside & outside of...More

I don't have an exact address, but as you can see in previous posts, Google is your best friend! As for touring it on your own, yes! I don't recall if they even have formal tours, but there was a caretaker (or a very nice gentleman who looked over the gift shop - which is right in the entrance as you walk in). This gentleman came into the church part and started striking up conversations with the visitors. He was very knowledgeable about the history and whatnot. There was no fee to pay to get in, but they did have donation boxes set up for you if you wished to contribute. It was interesting, and if you can get the caretaker involved with answering a question or two, then it is a very enriching experience.
