  • Jun 30, 2021 Beacon of Resilience: A Campaign for HistoryRead More

    The coronavirus pandemic has had overwhelming economic implications for the Museum and our ability to continue our work to promote Winston Churchill’s legacy and preserve the historic Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury. As a result, we are asking you to join our urgent fundraising effort by making a contribution to the Beacon of Resilience campaign today. Your gift will make a critical difference as we navigate the challenging months ahead.

The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury - Fulton, Missouri

The Church of St. Mary the Virgin, Aldermanbury, is a seventeenth-century English church located within the heart of mid-Missouri in Fulton. This church once stood in the center of London, England, where Nazi bombs gutted it during the Blitz of World War II. It is the only building in the United States designed by renowned English architect Sir Christopher Wren.
