This is a church that is still in use. The tour was very good. I love history and the stories and information was great. You could also just walk in and read the informational posters.

This is a very historical site to visit. Great for families and couples. It closes at 4 so be wise about the time. It takes around 30 minutes to tour the entire church.

It was quiet even though there were a lot of people. Very interesting history and gave me something to think about.

This is a very beautiful chapel in the 17th century style. When it was built, it was not really welcome by the Puritans, who left England to escape the Church of England! But it is still here! Lovely box pews, family owned with individual touches...More

So glad we went inside! So much history still there. It has been preserved amazingly well. It had a small $3 suggested donation.
