|Cemetery notes and/or description:|
All Faith Church is located south of Hughesville off of Rt. 5 near the Charlotte Hall Library and Veteran's Home.
Go South on Rt. 5, turn left onto Rt. 6 by 84 Lumber. Continue 2.5 miles. The church is on the hill.
All Faith was established in 1655 and the original church was built of logs. This building was replaced by the present colonial (Flemish bond) brick structure in 1767.
According to colonial records, the name "All Faith" was originally "Allfaiths," because in Resurrection Hundred it was the only building set aside for religious worship and all faiths used it. It is now part of the Episcopal Diocese of Washington. In the graveyard that surrounds the church, generations of parishioners lie buried.
