An Episcopal Church, started as an Anglican Church in Olde Towne Alexandria, is the church that George Washington and Robert E. Lee regularly attended. An informal and informative tour is provided to visitors who can sit in Washington's pew box and hear about the history of the church by a church docent. Very interesting if you're interested in history and... More

This church is a must see while visiting Alexandria. It is a part of Alexandria's rich history. Make sure you sit in one of the pew boxes.

Beautiful historic church whose historic parishioners included George Washington and Robert E. Lee. Tours available or you can attend worship services. Fascinating cemetery with headstones that are hundreds of years old.

Hard for me to be totally impartial, this was a favorite place when a student in the area. This is not only the historic church of George Washington and Robert E. Lee, it's also a functioning parish of the Episcopal Church. Services are according to that church's doctrine and worship. However, it's also clear that this congregation is not only... More

Such a lovely, deeply historic structure, one and all will thoroughly enjoy. Any of the historic structures in Olde Town Alexandria, are so completely worth-while!

Christchurch is one of historic Alexandra's most important locations. George Washington, Robert E Lee, FDR and Winston Churchill all worshiped here. Dozens of Confederate soldiers are buried in the church cemetery. The interior of the church is lovely, the steeple is a city land mark. Walk the grounds and you will see many other important landmarks.

We visited Christ Church as part of our walking tour, which we arranged through the visitor's center. We sat in the same box that George Washington, Roosevelt, and other dignitaries sat in when they attended services. A visit to Alexandria wouldn't be complete without a stop at Christ Church.

A simple & elegant church with an openness & lightness that attracts crowds to pay homage & to see the Pews where George Washington & Robert E Lee sat. Plaques indicate these 2 seats. Specific seats are labelled for the visit of President Roosevelt & his wife Eleanor & Prime Minister Winston Churchill who were present for the World Day... More
