Our hosts at Hope and Glory Inn suggested we drop by to visit this 19th century church built by Virginia's famous early planter, King Carter. It is indeed a great looking building from the exterior, but we declined to pay the $5 entrance fee.

Simply looking at the exterior of this beautiful little church is inspiring. It must be by the famous architect Wren.
