Today the main location of the Great Choptank Parrish is Christ's Church in Cambridge, Dorecester County, Maryland; a cemetery is also located beside this church, as well.
The location of the church has been moved several times; some of the graves originally located on this property may be lie under the currenct church structure.
The church structure, designed by noted Baltimore architect Charles E. Cassell and built between 1883 and 1884, is a large Gothic Revival stone structure of green serpentinite stone on a cruciform plan. The adjoining cemetery is enclosed on three sides by a brick wall, and burials therein date from 1674 to the present. Church parishioners included five governors of Maryland, a state Attorney General, an Ambassador to the Netherlands, local judges and lawyers and several U.S. Congressmen, where most are buried. Christ Episcopal Church and Cemetery was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.
