Bruton Parish Church is located in the restored area of Colonial Williamsburg in Williamsburg, Virginia. It was established in the 17th century in the Virginia Colony. Completed in 1715, the church is a historical icon. Many famous people have attended services there including Thomas Jefferson, George Washington, Patrick Henry, and George Mason. The church was used as a hospital in two pivotal wars in American history... the Revolution and the Civil War. Largely through the efforts of its rector, the Reverend Dr. W.A.R. Goodwin (1869-1939), who came to the parish in 1903, the aged and historic church building was restored by 1907 and still serves the community today.
