This is a lovely little old church, and on the day I visited there was a little Farmer's Market outside which was on a Wednesday afternoon. The produce was excellent, particularly a homemade oat and raisin cookie I purchased from Big Sky Bread. The church...More

Well-maintained, beautiful old church with a lot of history. Sat where George Washington and Betsy Ross sat during service. There was also a man playing music outside and it was lovely. Would recommend to anyone!

The church is interesting for who worshiped there. What struck us, though, were the many graves, both outside the church and actually in the church as part of the church floor (!), dating back to the 1700s...the names on some of them were familiar.

I believe it was 7 signers of the DOI resided on the small grounds here. It was well maintained and worth seeing.

Lovely grounds as well as a beautiful building. Many famous historical individuals are buried right there and found the whole thing very informative and inspiring. Benches in the shade provide a nice rest spot.

Come sit and praise the Lord in this old church. The likes of Benjamin Franklin, Betsy Ross, and George Washington sat in these pews. People of old worshiped here as they still do today.

This is a great representation of early churches in America. The founding fathers all worshipped here. You can sit in George Washington's pee box. Very simple beauty.

Pretty church of historical interest. You can visit or you can attend services, as it is an active church.
