Description
During the War of 1812, the British vandalized the village of Chaptico, doing extensive damage to Christ Church and desecrating its cemetery. Several members of the Francis Scott Key family are buried in the Key Family vault. The church is on the National Register of Historic Places. Over its 300-plus years, Christ Church has offered the people of Southern Maryland a place of spiritual comfort, connection, and renewal.
