Very cool to look at and see from the inside and out. Take a walk through the cemetery to see all the old headstones before you leave

If you enjoy history and/or architecture this is a must see treasure. A small donation is requested and a tour guide will the you through at your own pace while giving you the history and pointing out details that might otherwise be missed.

The tour of Christ Church, conducted by a perfectly lovely lady named Marianne, was most interesting and entertaining. Some of the stories our guide told us were wonderful. A must see if in this area.

The history of this place and the family that surrounded it's beginning is a marvel. The fact that materials were brought from overseas, such attention given to detail..at a time when all around was forest and wood.

If you are near Irvington, Virginia, you have to visit Historic Christ Church. Its Georgian architecture is unique and beautiful. The docents give a thorough explanation of the architecture and history of the church and the surrounding area. Plan about 1 1/2 hours to visit.
