Site 4 - Methodist Meeting House

Methodism was established in Laurel in teh "Upper Room" of this building in 1840.  The building served  as the meeting place for Laurel's Methodist congregation until construction of the "Old Stone Methodist Church" in 1842.

Site 5 - Old Stone Methodist Church

Built in 1842, this is the site of Laurel's first house of worship.  Remnants of the church and adjoining cemetery were removed in the 1950's.  It's successor is the First United Methodist Church on Main Street.

Site 6 - Yellow Row

Called the Yellow Row, these 12 attached units were built about 1880 as rental tenaments for mill workers.  They are the oldest row houses still standing in Prince George's County.  The mill later sold the houses to individual owners.

This was the last of the day before heading for dinner. I always enjoy a good historical virtual multi. Thanks, DudleyGrunt, for setting this up!

I just completed the webcam near here and of course wanted to get this one while nearby. I've done all of these walking tours to date and learn something new every time. TFTC

No, Astronut, I wasn't sleeping in today. I wish I was though. I went over my lunch break since I was working at home today, just trying to keep up with the local caches that are being placed. I enjoyed the hisitory lesson. Thanks for bringing me here!
