|Christ Church,, Irvington, Virginia
We visited Christ Church in Irvington, Virginia on a recent trip down the Northern Neck of Virginia. It is one of many historic sites in this area of Virginia.
Built in 1735 by Robert "King" Carter, historic Christ Church is one of the most important Georgian architecture in the United States. It was built with private funds, so it survived the destruction of many of the Churches of England after the Revolutionary War. It has survived intact over the years and still hosts services to this day.
I love the layout of this church. Groups have their own set of pughs that are walled off from others by a 5' high wooden partition.
