This was a special trip. The tour guide was wonderful. The architecture was phenomenal to survive since 1735. I never knew that the pews were in boxed areas with a door. A must if you are in the area. The exhibit in the welcome center was very educational! Met a woman who was the tour guide that was in my college class. Small world!

Tucked away in rural Virginia and in the middle of oyster country and wonderful golf courses lies this treasure. Built with the help of the King Carter family in the 1600s this old,church describes life in the colonial period. It’s architecture is remarkable with two raised pulpits, enclosed pews and original brickwork nicely surviving time. Giuided tours help in understanding why this Church is special. In the area? Don’t miss it.

Historic Christ Church is a must see and experience. It is so much a part of the history of Virginia and King Carter on the Corrotoman River. The church has no electricity accept for the organ...no heat or AC. One can truly feel what parishioners experienced 400 years ago and the learn the importance of the church in Virginia. The Visitors Center focuses on all aspects of the church, the design, it's location and it's ongoing restoration.

Interesting historical site with original seating and well maintained site. The graveyard is also interesting. Worth a stop-by.
