Overview
More
Bruton Parish Church is open daily to visitors with or without a Colonial Williamsburg admission ticket. A donation of one dollar per person is gratefully accepted to go toward upkeep of the church and churchyard. This is the third building in the history of Bruton Parish, in continuous use since 1715. All are welcome to attend a brief service of noonday prayer during the week, and Sunday services, held at 7:30, 9:15, and 11:15 am and 5:30 pm. Bruton Parish Church is an active congregation of the Episcopal Church, therefore we close for tours during weddings, funerals or scheduled services.

I am glad your granddaughter enjoyed that. The bell was a gift from James Tarpley in 1761! The tower was added to house the bell. You can see that the bricks are slightly different in color. Thank you for this review!

We started roaming through the cemetery surround the church then went inside. The docents were great and had lots of information to share. It's not always open ... sometimes it's closed because it is an active church. Every night there is a free organ recital.

We made the donation and visited Bruton Parish Church as part of our Williamsburg visit. The architecture made the tour worthwhile. Would recommend visiting the church during a visit.

The suggested donation as you mention is $1.00 per person and very much appreciated. It helps us with maintenance and bigger projects, keeping this 1715 building safe, dry, well-lit, heated and cooled. Thank you!
