Our church guide was knowledgable and presented information in a enthralling fashion. Was able to answer questions. The church is indescribable and pictures do not do justice to the beauty. A bit of a hidden gem. Highly recommend.

I did not expect much from this place. I was surprised. The church is small but very beautiful. It is a great place.

Where can you find a church with nothing but Tiffany glass? Not many churches can say this. The windows are truly extraordinary and are exemplary examples of Tiffany's art. They don't make colors like this anymore. They surrounding cemetery is also worth walking through. Many...More

While we didn't expect much when we arrived and looked at the outside of this church, the stain-glass-windows by Tiffany makes this a hidden treasure well worth seeing. Our guide said the tours may soon stop, which would be a great loss.

You can't go wrong visiting this historic building. It has beautiful Tiffany stain glass windows. You can just step back in time and feel the history in this church and cemetery. Some of the head stones go back to the 1700's. If you like history...More

Many of my ancestors and other rellies are buried at Blandford, and I have visited many times since a child. Some good ole boys I know even keep up the graves of our Confederate dead, including my great grandfather, for no remuneration. Very moving.......

I am a local and have been here countless times. Lunch breaks, quiet walks, solitude and history. Still visit frequently. If you are going to visit Petersburg for civil war history, this is a must see.
