USA - Virginia - Bruton Parish Church

Fall colors surround historic Bruton Parish Church. Completed in 1715, it served our colonial leaders and is still serving the community today as one of the oldest Episcopal Churches.

This is from Wikipedia : Bruton Parish Church is located in the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia, USA. It was established in 1674 in the Virginia Colony, and remains an active Episcopal parish.

The roots of Bruton Parish Church trace back to both the Church of England and the new settlement of the Colony of Virginia at Jamestown in the early 17th century. The role of the church and its relationship to the government had been established by King Henry VIII some years earlier. The same relationship was established in the new colony.
