A historic church built with private funds that has survived well. The architecture of the building was beautiful and the docent was very knowledgeable. If you like history, you'll enjoy visiting this church that is still in use today.

It was a wonderful tour of this beautiful historical church. Built in 1735 it is amazing to have survived 2 Wars and the weather with very minimal damage. A must see. Well worth the $5 admission.

We enjoyed learning about parish life in 1735. This history is incredible. And the church for being built well over 200 years ago is in perfect condition. You must see this!

The fee was $5 and there was no discount for seniors. I'm not sure if there was a group rate.
