Alexandria Christ Church Tours and Activities

Alexandria Christ Church
Feel the reverence of history and the weight of time at Christ Church in Old Town Alexandria, where visitors today sit in the same pews where George Washington and Robert E. Lee once worshipped. Commenced in 1767, Christ Church is a living testament to American history, and so is the site's cemetery, which memorializes 34 Confederate prisoners of war who perished in prison camps during the Civil War.

Christ Church measures a mere 60 feet by 50 feet, but despite its small size, the brick landmark looms large over the town and was designated a National Historic Landmark in 1970. The church consists of the main worshiping space, galleries in the upper level, a tower and the cemetery. Today, there are still regular services and events, as well as a congregation of more than 2,000 members. Tradition has it that every new president visits Christ Church on Washington's birthday. 

Practical Info

Christ Church is located in Old Town Alexandria, a short drive from Washington DC. Free docent-led tours are offered and last about 40 minutes. Christ Church is an active, operational church with regular Sunday services and special services throughout the year. 
Address: 620 G St SE, Alexandria 20003, USA
