Fodor's Review

Topped by a 186-foot steeple, St. Michael's is the city's oldest surviving church. The first cornerstone was set in place in 1752 and, through the years, other elements were added: the steeple clock and bells (1764); the organ (1768); the font (1771); and the altar (1892). A claim to fame: George Washington worshipped in pew number 43 in 1791. Listen for the bell ringing band to ring changes before worship services.
