The Church was part of our walking tour of Old Town Alexandria. It was well worth the visit to a church that counted among its members George Washington and Robert E. Lee.

We have visited this historic church several times. It is an honor to sit in the George Washington family pew and to learn how this church building remained an active congregation during the Civil War.

Wonderful church to visit. A volunteer gave us an excellent 10 minute history of the church and let us sit in George Washington's box.

It's a typical very old USA Episcopal church. It has an old cemetery around it. I have to make this 100 characters

Fascinating historical Church which is still very active in Alexandria. It was the Church of George Wadhington and Robert E. Lee and has been attended by many US presidents as well as Winston Churchill. Small, charming and a must to see in Old Town Alexandria.

Radical leftists running the church wish to erase history. Utterly shameful that the first President of the United States who attended services here for 20 years would be disrespected. I will never set foot in this church... More

There is street parking, We walked from our hotel. Another option is using the free trolley that runs up and down King Street and walking about two blocks.
