The Great Escape: Magothy Methodist Church
Who said that churches were only for parishioners? Magothy Methodist Church is packed full of history and it is the perfect place to escape from it all.

As the fall foliage begins to line the trunks of the once lush, green trees and the days grow shorter with the darkness of dusk coming en view earlier than usual, serenity beckons. This week’s Great Escape takes you to Magothy Methodist Church.
Located in the heart of Pasadena, Magothy Methodist Church is one of Pasadena’s many historical treasures. With a history so rich that it could easier be mistaken for legend, the church definitely has a lot to offer the greater Pasadena community.
As the kids are geared up and back in school, stopping by Magothy Methodist Church is the perfect way for busy parents to get back that much needed peace of mind. The architecture, although simple, is quite charming and the grounds are aesthetically pleasing. Think of it as chicken soup for the busy parent’s soul.
Renowned as one of the first Methodist churches in the Anne Arundel county area, the log version of Magothy Methodist was built on the grounds in the late 1700s. The current church was built twice at the current site. Once in 1859 and then after it was destroyed in a fire it was rebuilt in 1887.
If you are looking for a piece of Pasaden’a history and culture while getting away from it all, then the Magothy Methodist Church location just might be what you are looking for.
