Old Presbyterian Meeting House

321 S. Fairfax St., Alexandria, VA, 22314

Old Presbyterian Meeting House is at 321 S. Fairfax St. between Duke and Wolfe sts. Established in 1772, the meeting house became a gathering place for patriots during the Revolutionary War and was the site of George Washington's funeral sermons in December 1799. During the Civil War it was used briefly as a hospital. The grave of social and political figure John Carlyle and the Tomb of the Unknown Revolutionary War Soldier are in the churchyard. The old-fashioned gate pews of this still-active church have been retained. The keys to the sanctuary are available at the church office.
