Love the architecture of this building. It feels almost spiritual to gaze upon and sit in pews that once were occupied by Jefferson, Washington, Marshall. It reminds one of the brilliance and intellect of those founders who were able to influence the coming together of...More

Attended an a capella concert Saturday night - sound quality from the end balcony was great, but the church was kind of dark to be able to see well. The church service the next morning was very nice.
