Havre de Grace UMC has a long history!

Havre de Grace United Methodist Church in 1821-1840

I believe that the church first operated from the preacher’s home. This is the first building where the congregation met. We’re double checking. But I believe the Susquehanna Hose Company firehouse at the corner of Union and Pennington Avenue is where the building stood.

Supposedly, part of the wall was incorporated in the firehouse structure. We’re trying to find out if you can see it.

What a wonderful history. And this booklet tells a very complete story.

You are encouraged to learn more on their website. Better yet, please visit! It’s a beautiful building located at 101 South Union Avenue since 1902!
