    Volunteers in the church are more than happy to tell you about its history.

    The Reverand William A.R. Goodwin became rector in 1903 and it was he who wanted the colonial town restored to what it once was.

    This plaque commemorates the Rev. Goodwin and was dedicated by John Rockefeller jr in 1941.

    On seeing his name it was quite a coincidance as this was my late fathers name!

    This church which is Episcopal was built in 1715 and is still in use. In the belfry is the bell that was presented to the parish in 1761 and is still rung when services are held. The baptism font was brought from Jamestown church in the late 1750's.

    The church is free to enter and is not part of the Day Pass needed for the other buildings.

    Donations are gladly accepted for the upkeep of the church.

    BRUTON PARISH EPISCOPAL CHURCH

    This is the original Episcopal Church in Williamsburg. Church Services are held each Sunday. Christmas is very crowded and those who are not members need reservations to attend that service. Tickets need to be picked up a few days before the holiday. Some hotels will do that for guests.

    Nat and I were there on a Sunday so services were taking place and we were unable to go inside. However, there are tours available and they are given by those who know it best, the actual church members. Bruton Parish Church is an Episcopal church that has been in use since 1715.
