Inscription. Established 1748 at nearby Tuckahoe Bridge in Queen Anne's County. Congregation built church here in 1768, but it fell into decline as influence of Methodism grew on Eastern Shore. Under guidance of Rev. Robert William Goldsborough, present Gothic revival structure was begun 1853, patterned after design of Richard Upjohn. Despite destructive windstorm, church was completed, consecrated in 1858.
