The New Nation Birthstone of the Nation Christ Church, Alexandria, VA

Christ Church, Alexandria, VA

Original pews in which George Washington and General Robert E. Lee worshiped are marked within this Georgian building.  Built from 1767-1773 from plans by noted colonial architect James Wren, the church was constructed of red brick and accented with Aquia stone quoins and keystones.  Unlike the freestone in Aquia Church and Pohick Church, its stone is painted white.  The church is a major tourist attraction in downtown Alexandria.
