Fodor's Review

George Washington and Robert E. Lee were pewholders in this Episcopal church, which remains in nearly original condition. (Washington paid quite a lot of money for pews 59 and 60.) Built in 1773, it's a fine example of an English Georgian country-style church with its Palladian window, interior balcony, and English wrought-brass-and-crystal chandelier. Docents give tours during visiting hours.
