Virginia's is apparently a church in Jamestown, which makes sense.

I volunteered at the Jamestown Settlement for a summer in middle school (I was on the ships ... it was a lot of fun). It's kind of easy to take that stuff for granted, since I grew up in Williamsburg. My elementary school's playground shared a wall with the governor's palace. I was baptized in a church built in 1774, and my parents were married in a church whose current building was constructed around 1711.
