St. Peter's Church
St. George Town Bermuda
The Church of St. Peter's is noted for being the oldest Anglican church in continuous use in the Western Hemisphere as well as the oldest continuously used Protestant church in the New World.
It's a surprisingly steep walk up the wide stairs from the Duke of York Street to
St. Peter's Church, one of St. George's premier historic sites.
It did not last long and St. Peter's had to be rebuilt many times, eventually constructed of limestone walls and a limestone slate roof supported by Bermuda cedar.
There is plenty to see both inside and outside St. Peter's. The interior, with striking exposed Bermuda cedar beams, contains numerous plaques commemorating many of St. George's most famous residents.
St. Peter's cemetery is open almost anytime during the day; the church when the entrance door is open.
