Aquia Church, U.S. Route 1 & State Route 676, Stafford, Stafford County, VA

description

Summary

Significance: Aquia Church is among the largest and handsomest of Virginia churches. It is built in the form of a Greek cross with hipped roof and has a most interesting unorthodox tower arising from the west end. What is doubly remarkable quite aside from the architectural details is the circumstance of finding bell and clock in this rural area. Hands from the old clock are said to have been in existence until comparatively recent times. Few country churches of the eighteenth century boasted bells while most of them were dependent upon sun dials for the time.
