St. Paul's History

St. Paul's celebrates our 200th Anniversary: 1822 - 2022!
St. Paul’s is the oldest church in Prince William County. In 1801, the Commonwealth of Virginia obtained a deed to build a District Court House serving the counties of Fairfax, Fauquier, Loudoun, and Prince William. The building was also used as a church, school, and for community meetings. By 1822, the building was used for Episcopal Church services only. In 1975, the church was designated a National, Commonwealth of Virginia, and Prince William County Historic Place. Beginning in 2013, extensive renovations were made to the interior and exterior of the church, and a columbarium was installed behind the church.
