Title: Westover Church


“Early colonists in Jamestown migrated
westward, bringing Anglican worship there
as early as 1613. Westover Parish was
recognized in 1625 by the House of Burgesses.
A church built in 1630 at Westover Plantation
was moved to its present site in 1731.
Abandoned for a time after the Revolution, it
was reconsecrated in 1833. Badly damaged
by Federal troops in 1862, it was restored in
1867. Services have continued ever since.
