My wife and I always enjoy visiting Bruton Parish when we visit Williamsburg. It gives you a living window in to history of how some of the citizens of Williamsburg worshipped during colonial times. It is a wonderful place to sit, pause, pray, and reflect.

This church is small and beautiful and historic. Many important early Americans worshiped here. It has a working organ that is still used for recitals today.

The pipe organ gets a lot of use for sure, between Sunday services, year-round Candlelight Concerts and organ scholars. Thank you for your visit and review.

This historic church shows off Williamsburg at its best because it is the historic church but still an active congregation. Note that your fee to colonial Williamsburg is NOT going to the church, and spare a donation just for them. Concerts and services are well...More

Very interesting look at worshiping in Colonial times. The church is an active Episcopal church holding services on Sunday and during the week. Docents were very helpful and informative.
