Inscription. St. Philip's Church was built in 1848 through the efforts of Horace and Louisa Snowden Capron and Parishioners. It was probably the first building in Laurel designed by a professional Architect. It houses a bell from St. Paul's Church in Baltimore that rang to warn the approaching British in 1814. An old cemetery can be seen behind the church.
