This historic edifice, built in 1741, is the oldest church in Richmond.  it was here during the second Virginia Convention on March 23, 1775, that Patrick Henry rose from his pew (third from the front, designated here by the open door) and uttered his famous challenge - "Give Me Liberty Or Give Me Death!".
