Pohick Episcopal Church, Truro Parish
Fairfax County, Virginia

#NC-08210-WP - Notecards
#PR-08210-WP - Open Edition Print

The church, located between Mount Vernon and Gunston Hall, was consecrated in 1774. It was designed by James Wren who also designed The Falls Church, Alexandria's Christ Church, and the Fairfax County Courthouse. Both George Washington and George Mason sat on the building committee for Pohick Church. The building was a Union Army Cavalry Picket Post in 186265, during which its interior was completely demolished. Later renovations have returned the interior to its original configuration. It remains home to an active parish.

The vestry of a colonial parish was a proving ground for the colonial government. By law, the vestries performed many social and civic functions. Thus a vestryman was recognized by his community as a respected, knowledgeable leader. The roster of vestrymen of Truro Parish carried the names of many leaders in the long journey to independence and nationhood.
