Rock Creek Parish

This Plaque recognizes the designation of St. Paul's Episcopal Church (Rock Creek Parish) and its churchyard known as Rock Creek Cemetery, in the National Register of Historic Places.

Founded originally as a preaching mission, with first services held in this vicinity the 2nd Sunday in May 1712 — 64 years before the Declaration of Independence. "St. Paul's Rock Creek" is the oldest church and the only colonial church in the present District of Columbia.

On September 18, 1719, Colonel John Bradford, Maryland Tobacco planter, gave 100 acres of land on which to build a chapel and to serve as a glebe for the support of the ministers and work of the church. The glebe, now Rock Creek Cemetery, is the Hallowed resting place of many eminent persons who contributed to American History.
