Wonderful history. Although we arrived shortly after hours, we were greeted by a kind gentleman who encouraged us to enjoy walking around the grounds and to come back during operating hours for a full tour.

Restored church with guided tours and a small interactive museum. Presents a view of early colonial life and times on the great neck of Virginia and information on the Carter Family and their extensive holdings. Must see if you are into architecture or history

Very cool to look at and see from the inside and out. Take a walk through the cemetery to see all the old headstones before you leave
