Blandford Church and Cemetery

Blandford Church is one of the few churches with fifteen decorative stained-glass windows completely executed under the direction of the famous designer Louis Comfort Tiffany of New York. The Church was used as a field hospital during the Siege of Petersburg.

Blandford Cemetery, one of the oldest and largest in America, is the resting place of an estimated 30,000 Confederate soldiers who lost their lives during the Siege. There are outstanding examples of eighteenth, nineteenth and twentieth-century gravestones, sculptures and decorative iron fences in the Cemetery.
