Wonderfully kept up church dating back to George & Martha Washington (Mt Vernon is only a couple of miles away). Church looks like it did in colonial days (with the addition of modern conveniences) and you can get an audio tour of the historic part...More

Pohick Church has been restored to be as it was in the Colonial era. It has family boxes, rather than open pews, and it has a traditional high pulpit. Behind the altar there are plaques with the Apostles' Creed, the Lord's Prayer, and the Ten...More

If you're in the area, it's worth your time to visit this historic church. I'm always amazed when I consider that George Washington, a vestry member, and his family, traveled by horse/ buggy from the Mt. Vernon estate, even in snow, to regularly attend services...More

I lived in Ft Belvoir once, so I knew the church's history. Many do not. But I think it a beautiful "must" for Colonial fans. Mt Vernon is only 2 miles away, so this Episcopal Church (still active) was his home church. He and his...More

Excellent side trip. Very historic. We were treated to a Lite Supper that was included in our trip. Delightful shop also. Wish we had more time to spend there so many interesting details. Can photograph anything in church. Delightful place to see.

Historic Church, friendly folks, interesting sermon. It's a very unusual physical set-up with boxes instead of pews. The after-service coffee time allows for getting to know one another. A very tight-knit group & if you're looking for an Episcopal Church in the Northern Virginia area,...More
