Historical Bruton Parish

The historic Bruton Parish Church in Colonial Williamsburg, Virginia named for Bruton, Somersetshire, England is an incredibly beautiful and well-known as the church where many of the founding fathers of the US attended services.  It remains an active house of worship since its beginning in 1660. The church has been used as a hospital during two wars and has served three generations of worshippers. We have visited, toured, and photographed Bruton Parish and Colonial Williamsburg since our childhood and it has many historical treasures to photograph and rich history for history buffs.

“Parish history dates to Middle Plantation in 1660 Among the men of the Revolution who attended Bruton Parish Church were Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Richard Henry Lee, George Wythe, Patrick Henry, and George Mason. But the building’s history, and that of its churchyard, goes back further in time. Dating from 1715, the present structure is the third in a series of Anglican houses of worship that began in 1660.”*
