Makemie Memorial Presbyterian Church is a historic Presbyterian church located in Snow Hill, Worcester County, Maryland. In 1883, for the 200th anniversary of the organization of the church, it was resolved to build a Makemie Memorial Church in honor of its founder, Reverend Francis Makemie (1658 – 1708). The present building designed by noted Philadelphia architect Isaac Pursell. It was started in 1887 and dedicated on June 29, 1890. It is a Gothic Revival structure, built of red brick with red sandstone trim. There are five beautiful memorial windows in the sanctuary and the vaulted ceiling is supported by hand hewn, exposed wooded arches. It has two tall towers.
Maryland Senator Ephraim King Wilson II (1821 - 1891) is buried in the adjacent graveyard. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 2008.(Wikipedia)
