There is much to see and do at Virginia Theological Seminary. We have witnessed neighbors enjoying a quiet walk with friends in the morning, while others walk their dogs or ride their bikes around the Grove.

And even for those further away than across the street, VTS is a destination location. This past fall, for example, the Alexandria Historical Association met here for a guided tour of historical buildings followed by a reception in Scott Lounge. Archivist Chris Pote and faculty member Bob Prichard offered a wonderful tour for the group of 75.

Some groups opt to build their own tour by taking advantage of our Self-Guided Chapel Tour and 10 Sights to See in One Hour brochures. Each offers a handy guide to the iconic features of the Seminary that reflect our rich past, present, and future.

Here are a few of the sights you can see in one hour:

* The beautiful stained glass windows in Immanuel Chapel;
* Oakwood – the oldest building on campus;
* The Cemetery on the east side of the Campus;
* St. Cyprian’s Labyrinth;
* “Mary as Prophet” Sculpture by Margaret (Peggy) Adams Parker
* Civil War Graffiti on Aspinwall Hall;
* Phillips Brooks Bust in Bishop Payne Library;
* Bishop Walker’s Portrait in Scott Lounge.

We enjoy having visitors on campus. If you are in the area, or if you have friends and family visiting, please take advantage of our beautiful campus. Pause, rest, reflect, and recharge on this Holy Hill.
