St. John's Episcopal Church Reviews

I really enjoyed stopping here and taking in the abundant history. We paid for a tour and was slightly disappointed that it's not really a tour at all, rather a sort of lecture. There was a guy in colonial costume who led us into the church to pews where he proceeded to lecture us a history of the church and a brief history of Patrick Henry and his famous speech. He did a very nice job. Then we were let go. So it really wasn't a tour at all which I sort of had the impression that maybe he would walk us through the grounds and other small outlying buildings and give us tours of the interiors of those as well. That being said, I didn't mind donating to the non-profit preservation organization who does the grounds upkeep which is really good. I really enjoyed walking around on my own just thinking that George Washington and other patriots once walked in the spots I was walking. Neat stuff. God Bless America!
Patrick Henry was wise to George the III and knew what was coming. It was here at this location that he was inspired to bring his resolutions for a vote. It was close, but the motion was carried. If you value your Liberty and recognize that it's not by accident, I encourage you to but the $5 advance ticket for a good seat and experience this historic event that led to the Revolution.
