Built during the waning days of Virginia's status as a British colony, this structure served not only as a place of worship but also as a gathering place for patriots during the Revolutionary War. George Washington's funeral service was held here in December, 1799. The church is in use today, and many of the original architectural elements remain, despite a fire in 1835. The cemetery features the grave of John Carlyle, a prominent Alexandria
citizen. An American flag marks the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier of the American Revolution.
