Baltimore Off The Beaten Path: 93 reviews and 172 photos
Built in 1872 in Victorian Gothic style. Perhaps the most interesting aspect of this church is that it was built on the site of a mansion once owned by the husband of Elizabeth Phoebe Key, the daughter of Francis Scott Key. In the house that once stood on this lot, Francis Scott Key, the writer of the Star Spangled Banner, died in 1843.
Mount Vernon Place United Methodist Church and its accompanying Asbury House were listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1971.
A small plaque for Francis Scott Key reads:
“And this be our motto In God is our Trust” —Key
