Description   EN   

Dudley's Chapel was built in in 1783 on land donated by Joshua Dudley. It was the first Methodist Meeting House in Queen Anne's County and one of the earliest surviving Methodist Churches in the nation.

It grew out of the Queen Anne's Methodist Society organized in 1774, who was responsible for building the chapel.  They were also crucial in the spread of Methodism throughout the region. 

Many early Methodist leaders, including Bishop Francis Asbury, Thomas Coke, Richard Whatcoat,  Jesse Lee (1st Methodist historian), and Freeborn garrettson (1st Native American Methodist minister)  preached here.

Dudley's Chapel is an outstanding example of an early rural church.  Its rectangular plan and steep gable roof typify late 18th century churches in Maryland.  The use of brink is rare for early Methodist churches, attesting to the importance of Dudley's Chapel and relative affluence of its congregation.

Restoration of this National Register site was initiated in 1991.

1 03 August 2014 sfcchaz Found it

I came this way to seek a couple of caches, an cache and a GeoDash that were on this side of the Chesapeake for a contest happening this month. I also picked up few Groundspeak caches of opportunity while I was in the area to add to my '7 Souvenirs of August' that Groundspeak is conducting.

This one was alittle further away than I thought, but it's nice to get it off the radar and score some points for it to boot.

WoW - I was having serious problems reading the CC while at the site, but as soon as I saw it in a picture, it was clear. TNLN TFTC

I stopped by today en route from Tuckahoe to Elk Neck. I'm really surprised this one hasn't been found yet. I certainly appreciate the history behind this one. Thanks!
