St John's Church has stood on Richmond Hill above the James
River since 1741, and is known for having been the venue for the
second Virginia Convention in 1775, attended by George Washington
and other historic personalities. The church is also where
legendary Pocahontas was baptised and married to John Rolfe. The
wooden building still boasts its original pulpit and some exquisite
stained-glass windows. Between May and September living history
performances are given every Sunday recreating the historic Second
Virginia Convention. Informative tours explore the historic
significance of the church building and grounds.
