Everyone has commended the beauty of the windows and they are breathtaking but there's more here than that. Most interesting to me was that this was where our Memorial Day tradition began and it was first organized by the Women's Memorial Association at a time...More

One of the few buildings in existence where every window is designed and made by Tiffany. The majority of the windows represent various saints. The windows were beautiful. You must take the 45 minute tour in order to get into the church to view the...More

You cannot see the beauty of the windows without a tour. They do a fantastic job with the tour, even though, apparently, tour guides are not paid because Petersburg is almost bankrupt. They do a great jog on the tours.

The stained glass windows--wow! Absolutely beautiful. Definately worth a detour to see the glass and hear the story of the church. The cemetery is pretty cool as well.

Fifteen Tiffany windows with a poignant purpose, to honor the Confederate States war dead. In this day, it is a hard thing to understand, but the women who made this monument in an abandoned church were wives, daughters, mothers and sweethearts of Confederate soldiers. Thirty...More
