Cemetery notes and/or description:

In 1852, Henry and Eleanor Owens deeded a 1/2 acre plot for a "Chapel of Ease," which came to be known as the Chapel of St. James the Less. After the Civil War, Charles Owens deeded an additional 21/2 acres to the Vestry to build a new church.

The construction of Christ Episcopal Church, financed by Eleanor Hall McCaleb Burwell as a memorial to two of her children, James and Annie McCaleb, was begun in 1867 and consecrated in 1869. The blueprint of the structure was taken from a 19th century sketchbook by architect Richard Upjohn.

The unique style of "Carpenter Gothic" architecture is now considered to be the finest example of its type on the east coast. Christ Episcopal Church is listed in the Maryland Register of Historic Sites and Buildings with the U.S. Department of the Interior.
