The first Methodist meeting house in Queen Anne's County, and one of the earliest in the Nation, was built in 1783 on land donated by Joshua Dudley. The Queen Anne's Methodist Society, organized in 1774, was responsible for building the chapel. The Society met at the chapel and was crucial in the spread of Methodism throughout the region. Many early Methodist leaders preached at Dudley's Chapel, including Bishop Francis Asbury, Bishop Thomas Coke, Richard Whatcoat, Jesse Lee (1st Methodist historian) and Freeborn Garrettson (1st Native American Methodist minister). Dudley's Chapel is an outstanding example of an early rural church. Its rectangular plan and steep gable roof typify late 18th century churches in Maryland. The use of brick is rare for early Methodist churches, attesting to the importance of Dudley's Chapel and relative affluence of its congregation. Restoration of this National Register site was initiated in 1991 and continues today.
