New Jerusalem Lutheran Church, formally
established in 1765, was among Virginia's earliest
Lutheran congregations east of the Blue Ridge
Mountains. Its founders were Palatine Germans who
immigrated to this area from Pennsylvania and
Maryland in the mid-18th century. They constructed
their first sanctuary, a log building, on land given
by George William Fairfax. Services were conducted
in German until about 1830. The present Late
Greek Revival-style sanctuary was dedicated in
1869, and îts bell tower was added in 1903. The
cemetery's earliest legible stone dates to 1770.
A number of Revolutionary War soldiers are
buried here.
