About half the 6.5 acres the church owns was set aside for a graveyard.
The Capital newspaper article dated March 4, 2004 “Church Tries to Combat Cemetery Vandalism” tells about 32 smashed or overturned tombstones. Another article about the vandalism is found in The Baltimore Sun dated March 6, 2004.
According to an online Broadneck Patch article (undated) the church was purchased from Thomas Hamilton Arnold for $5 in 1859.
The church building was finished in 1888 and renovated in 2003.
