St. John's Church

Visit Group & Artist Website

Since 1938, St. John’s Church Foundation has preserved this historic property as a tangible connection to our founding fathers and as host to a defining moment in our nation’s history. Here Patrick Henry delivered his famous “Give me Liberty or Give me Death!” speech to the Second Virginia Convention of March 1775. Present were George Washington, Thomas Jefferson, Richard Henry Lee, and many other landed gentlemen who altered the course of our nation. Our programs bring to life the events that led to the American Revolution and allow us to maintain and preserve St. John's Church for future generations.
