Constructed by Robert “King” Carter and completed in 1735, Christ Church is the finest and best-preserved parish church from colonial Virginia.  The church is a National Historic Landmark and one of America’s great buildings.  It retains most of its original elements, including its molded-brick doorways, classical entablature, high-backed pews, triple-deck pulpit and stone pavers.  The elaborately carved tombs of Robert Carter and his two wives stand in the churchyard.   The site includes an interactive museum, an attractive gift shop, a research room, and a conference/education center.  Special educational programs and community events take place throughout the year.
