Historic Christ Church

Historic Christ Church Review

Completed in 1735, this church opened its doors when George Washington was three years old. The Georgian-style structure, on the National Register of Historic Places, was built by Robert "King" Carter and contains a rare "triple-decker" pulpit made of native walnut. Bricks for the church were fired in a great kiln near the churchyard. A 12-minute video is screened in the museum.
