  • Fantastic experience! Ray was our tour guide and was perfect. We are civil war reenactors and also attorneys, he was thrilled to talk all things history with us as well about Patrick Henry's legal career. His interpretation in the church was very lively and entertaining.
  • Fantastical piece of history, the spot where Patrick Henry gave his "Hive me liberty or give me death" speech to Virginia delegates. The grounds and church, which is still an active place of worship, are well maintained. The living historian, Ray, was fantastic. He's a wealth or knowledge and a great orator.
  • Beautiful old church with so much history. The grounds are covered with gravestones. The inside of the church looks like it hasn't changed much in hundreds of years. Looking forward to visiting again in the Spring to hear the reenactment of Patrick Henry's famous "Give Me Liberty or Give Me Death" speech.
  • Great tour from Ray! A must see for all Richmond visitors.
  • We just walked the grounds and looked at the tombstones and Edger Allen Poe's mothers grave. So much history on such a small plot of land.
