We visited this church as part of an all day full island tour with a private tour guide. It is a well preserved and beautiful church so peaceful. Lovely grounds and the Liberty Bell is on show. Well worth a visit.

We went on a tour with James Taxi (happiesttours@gmail.com) and this was one of the stops. It's very beautiful to see and interesting to learn all about the history. I was definitely glad that we made the stop here.
