Things To Do

Educational programs for school groups include the American Revolution Learning Station Program. It features costumed demonstrations and re-enactments that explore the site's history as it relates to the American Revolution, in general, and the Battle of Pell's Point, in particular. It runs 1 hour and 45 minutes, and is available for school groups ranging in size from 40 to 80 students. It is offered from October through December and again from late March through June. Outdoor space is available for bag lunches.

Interpretive tours for the general public explore the fascinating history of the 240-year-old church, focusing on the 18th century. Staff-led tours take you up the 225 year old church tower to see a bell cast in 1758 at the same foundry as the Liberty Bell. You will also see and hear the sounds of the 1833 pipe organ, one of the oldest functioning organs in America. Tours of the historic cemetery -- one of the oldest in the country -- trace the changing nature of religious and secular symbolism as revealed through the stones, over 300 years.

The current feature exhibition in the museum is: "A Conservative Union Parish: St. Paul's Church and the Civil War."
