Overview

This is the oldest frame church in Virginia, erected in 1729, and paid for with 60,000 pounds of tobacco. Patrick Henry's uncle was its rector from 1737-1777. North Carolina troops camped in and around the church in 1862 before the Civil War battle of Hanover Courthouse. This interesting example of colonial architecture is located near Randolph Macon College, Scotchtown and the Ashland Berry Farm. Tours are by appointment only.
