Hours | Admission | Directions

St. John’s Church, a National Historic Site, powerfully engages visitors by placing them in the very spot where our forebears‚ including Patrick Henry, Thomas Jefferson, and George Washington‚ discussed the issues and enacted the deeds that led to the founding of America. Costumed interpreters conduct daily tours of the church, sharing the story of the Second Virginia Convention at which Patrick Henry recited his famous “Liberty or Death” speech.  The graveyard, the first public cemetery in Richmond, is also available for exploration.  Many people important to Richmond and Virginia are buried here including George Wythe, who not only signed the Declaration of Independence but also taught law to Thomas Jefferson, Chief Justice John Marshall, and Henry Clay. Our Visitor Center features a timeline exhibit and many wonderful books and gifts for the souvenir shopper.
