You can’t miss this famous landmark. Make sure you go inside (just a donation) and talk to the docents. They will tell you about the founding fathers who attended there and the history of the building. Try to attend one of the candlelight concerts if...More

We appreciate your visit and review. If you are still in town, please walk up Duke of Gloucester to the Bruton Parish Shop and Heritage Center, to learn more and shop for fun gifts. Thank you!

Enjoyed a Saturday evening candlelight concert and the church was so beautiful. There is so much history here and still an active church! Definite must see!

Bruton Parish has so much history. Sit in George Washington's pew. The greeters are very knowledgeable. If you are there on a Sunday, don't miss the choral service.

Yes, we are open daily. The Bruton Guides are happy to give you a bit of history. Great for kids. Sunday services are at 7:30, 9:15 and 11:15 in the morning and 5:30 in the evening. All are welcome. Thank you!

I just had to see the beautiful pipe organ, only to find out that they are taking this one and replacing it with another small number of pipes. I was indeed happy to hear that the existing organ is going to a good home.

Yes and yes. We'll have a new, American-built organ about 18 months from now. Please come back and hear it! Thank you for your review.

We were fortunate to be able to attend the Sunday service here during our stay. A meaningful experience. NB: no restrooms on site. This congregation is used to tourists, and they were very welcoming.

Thank you for coming. We love having guests for services and tours. Restroom across the street at the Custis House is open when we are!

My family and I visited here recently for the first time. The church was certainly beautiful inside with plenty of tour guides on hand to talk to about the history.

To see the boxes where Martha Custis and her future husband George Washington sat was geek meter overload, but to know that these are still used by parishioners today was astonishing. A wedding had just taken place days before our arrival. Free admittance but you...More

Great to hear your experience at Bruton Parish. The church has been standing since 1715! Yes, one dollar per person is appreciated on the way out. Thank you!

Before I arrived, I printed a Self-Guided tour from their website. By U.S. standards, this is an old cemetery. The restoration efforts go back a century with Cynthia Beverley Tucker Coleman who organized the Catherine Memorial Society which was named after her daughter who had...More

Thanks for the information you provide here for others. The Society you mention, formed by Mrs. Coleman and other ladies, raised funds to restore the Powder Magazine and other original buildings later on. It operates to this day as Preservation Virginia.

Lovely folks at this church give concerts from time to time. You can sit wherever you like. Granddaughter sat where GW sat. Great concert in a magnificent colonial era church. Once-in-a- lifetime event. Thanks, Bruton Church congregation for making this possible.
