Annunciation Church has been a Williamsburg landmark since its construction in 1870. The church was designed in the Lombard Romanesque style, including a 110 foot belltower. Annunciation's impressive "Opus 288" pipe organ was built by the Austin Organ Company in 1912. The church's unique high altar is composed of hand carved wood, gilded with gold and silver leaf accents, containing statues dating back to 1870. Annunciation's Sacristan, Dr. Algirdas Lukosevicius, will describe the church's extensive artwork, including its high altar, side altars, statues, paintings, murals and the distinctive Lithuanian wayside crosses at the church entrance.

Saturday & Sunday Tour Info: Annunciation's Sacristan, Dr. Algirdas Lukosevicius, will describe the church's extensive artwork on ongoing tours, offered every 15 min throughout both days.
