Foundation for Historic Christ Church
"Tucked away in a quiet corner of coastal Virginia is an architectural masterpiece, the centerpiece of a museum and engaging historical site dedicated to the preservation and interpretation of eighteenth-century Virginia history. This National Historic Landmark, the 1735 Christ Church, is in near-original condition and is one of America's great buildings. Visitors can explore this stunning edifice and discover museum exhibits and artifacts related to the social and political world of colonial Virginia, the lives of the Carters and ordinary parishioners, and the preservation of the church."
"A National Historic Landmark that stands today virtually unchanged since 1735"

The museum also celebrates the sister city connection with Kilmarnock, Scotland"
