Alexandria's Christ Church reviews
This is a great building to come and visit. It's also an active church with a terrific congregation. If you are looking for a place to worship while in town, this is a great spot to do it. more »
This stunning church has a rich history which you are able to experience first hand. Sit in George Washington or The Lee Family pews. Attend a service in this still active church, or pay respects... more »
Beautiful opportunity to walk among history. The Church and grounds are lovely. Whether strolling through the courtyards and admiring the gates on the outside, or the lovely interior, a beautiful day was had as we enjoyed this perfect setting. I mean, George Washington worshipped here. Does it get more American? Go. Its in a great neighborhood. Everything surrounding is beautiful: historic or modern.
Beautiful historic church... completed durimg the Revolutionary War... George Washington owned a bench area along the north wall and frequently attended services. The docent provides a very informative discussion of the founding, building and history of the church. It is a simple but classical Georgian design and is authentically maintained as an active church today. For the docent presentation you are able to sit in the George Washington benches... also where other sitting Presidents have sat (most recent was George and Laura Bush). Of interest, just after the outbreak of World War 2, President Roosevelt and his wife, Eleanor, hosted PM Winston Churchill in the very same seats! Too cool!
