inSPIREd Sunday

This church in Lexington, Va., was founded in 1840, 

mainly as a place of worship for the cadets at
nearby VMI.  It was originally called Grace Church, 
but after the Civil War it became the R.E. Lee Memorial Church.
This past November, a vote was taken on whether to drop 
the Lee name.  They kept it (but I'm thinking that 
in this town, even if they hadn't it probably would still
have been called the "Lee chapel").

[To see more churches from around the world, go here.]


  1. Fine looking photo of this church. But it is sad that some areas of the country are still fighting the Civil War. Not surprised they decided to keep the name.

    1. I believe some still refer to it as the War of Northern Aggression. (!)

  2. Seem to remember visiting the town years ago, shame I was not interested in Churches then. Looks a nice one

  3. Hy Alexa!
    Very interesting church.
