Boehm's Chapel is the fourth oldest existing structure built for Methodist worship in America. It was erected on land donated by the Rev. Martin Boehm, an itinerant preacher and co-founder with the Rev. Phillip W. Otterbein of the United Brethren in Christ Church.
The Chapel, the first Methodist Church in Lancaster County, was a frequent stopping place for circuit riders of many denominations, including itinerant Bishop Francis Asbury, "the Father of American Methodism." It thus became the merger of the German-speaking United Brethren Church & the English-speaking Methodist Church, now known as the United Methodist Church.
