Visited on a Friday morning so it was just a handful of us and we were able to enjoy the ambiance. The church is well maintained with the history in tact. Architecture is beautiful.

We visited this church as part of an all day full island tour with a private tour guide. It is a well preserved and beautiful church so peaceful. Lovely grounds and the Liberty Bell is on show. Well worth a visit.

We went on a tour with James Taxi (happiesttours@gmail.com) and this was one of the stops. It's very beautiful to see and interesting to learn all about the history. I was definitely glad that we made the stop here.
