Significance: St. Paul's at Baden is the oldest church in Prince George's County, and one of only six churches extant from the colonial period. In May of 1692, the Governor's Council and the Maryland Assembly -- acting on orders from King William and Queen Mary -- established thirty Maryland parishes of the Church of England. St. Paul's was one of two parishes then formed in Prince George's County. The present church structure was built in 1733-35 (with later additions forming a cruciform plan) to replace an older parish church in Charles Town, the original county seat. At one time, St. Paul's was the richest parish in the state.
