Interior Sanctuary, St. John's Church

This photograph of the interior sanctuary in St. John's Church was taken by Bruce White for the White House Historical Association on March 5, 2009. Founded in 1815, St. Johns Episcopal Church is the second oldest building on Lafayette Square. Benjamin Henry Latrobe, the architect of the Capitol and several other famous buildings, designed the church. St. John's is known as the Church of the Presidents- every president since James Madison has attended services in the building.
