Christ Episcopal Church and Cemetery is an historic Episcopal church and cemetery located at Cambridge, Dorchester County, Maryland U.S.A.

History

Christ Church is the parish church of Great Choptank Parish, founded in 1692 as one of the List of original 30 Anglican parishes in the Province of Maryland.

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.
