1. The Prettiest Little Church in Southern Maryland
"Called the 'prettiest little church in Southern Maryland' when it was consecrated in 1891, St. Ignatius Church is a rare surviving example of Queen Anne-style ecclesiastical architecture. The cemetery in the churchyard has stones bearing the names of many of the county's oldest families, including that of the mother of Mary Surratt (accomplice to Lincoln assassin John Wilkes Booth)."
