We only went to the graveyard. It is very interesting with graves dating back to the 1600. Many old ones are hard to read but it looked like some have been restored. The history is amazing to read on the gravestones.

we went past on two tours and received the history. You can walk through the grave yard which also has an interesting history. We did not go inside, not sure if you can but go see it on a walking tour and get the history.

We parked beside this church four times in a bank's parking lot. $10 on weekends. The cemetery is on three sides of the church. The markers tell many stories in short meaningful phrases.

I have been to a couple of events that took place at the Circular church. It is beautiful, and certainly very unusual with the seating inside making a semi-circle and so forth. Would love to attend a service there sometime.
