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.

Must see if you are in Alexandria. So much history. Let me just tease you. One side is the Washington side (George) and the other side is the Lee Side (Robert E.) And it will all make sense as well as the story of Alexandria....More

This was my favorite tour. Enter the church cemetery and see the remains of what the federal soldiers left behind in the cemetery. (They pulled up the markers and used the slabs for cooking, hence the scorch marks on the tombstones.) Then enter the church...More

What a wonderful place to visit! It is so peaceful and it is wonderful to think of all the famous people who have worshiped here, such as Washington, Churchill and Roosevelt. The old lady at the door was friendly and welcoming too. I'd recommend you...More

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.
