    Although George Washington was a member of Truro Church in his hometown of Mount Vernon, he reserved a family pew at Christ Church. This bench has been preserved in its original place in his honor. Confederate General Robert E. Lee, an Alexandria native, worshiped at this parish all his life. Built in 1773, the architectural marvel has been restored to its authentic Georgian style. An unique Palladian window and tablets, hand-lettered by Colonial James Wren, and a towering minaret are special features of the building. It has played an important role in shaping history, the New Year's of 1942 will always be remembered, when Prime Minister Winston Churchill and President Franklin Roosevelt attended a peace gathering during World War II.
