1. Chapel of Ease Marker
Inscription.  Upon this spot stood the "Chapel of Ease," erected in 1730 for the ease and convenience of families living in distant parts of St. Anne's Parish. Permission to build this church was granted to a party of churchmen by Charles Lord Baltimore upon the presentation of a petition. It thus became the first place of worship in this locality.
