Christ Church

In the heart of Old Town Alexandria, this beautiful English country-style church was built between 1767-1773. It was attended by George Washington, whose pew is marked with a silver plaque, and Robert E. Lee. The surrounding gardens and cemetery were used by Union troops during the Civil War to graze their horses but the church itself was preserved as a sign of respect for George Washington. Public tours are available Monday-Saturday 9am-4pm and Sunday 2-4pm. All are welcome to attend Sunday morning and evening worship services.
