If you are looking for a quaint, intimate venue for weddings, baptisms, memorial services, or, musical presentations, Taylor's Chapel may be the place for you. Taylor's Chapel is a small chapel (it seats approximately 70 people) that was built by the Taylor family of Baltimore, Maryland, in 1853. It is available for events in the months of March, April, May, September, October, and November.
Originally affiliated with the Methodist Church, Taylor's Chapel no longer has a regular congregation, but Ecumenical Christian services are held there several times a year, organized by the Chapel's Board of Trustees. Weddings, baptisms or funerals may be conducted by any accredited officiant.
Taylor's Chapel is located on the edge of the original Taylor family farm which was bought by the city of Baltimore in 1925 and is now a city park known as Mt. Pleasant Golf Course. The official address is 6001 Hillen Road, Baltimore, Maryland, 21239. The golf course driveway leads to the chapel and there is adequate parking immediately adjacent to the chapel. The chapel has excellent acoustics and would be suitable for small musical ensembles.
Due to its' small size, the chapel has no plumbing and therefore no bathroom facilities. However, a short walk up the driveway brings you to the golf course club house (once the Taylor Family home) with facilities open during park hours from 9 to dusk. There is also a lunch counter and eating area where anyone is welcome.
A donation, which is tax deductible, is requested for use of the chapel. The amount depends on the length of time involved, including decorating and cleaning but generally is around $250 for small gatherings and $500 for larger, more elaborate weddings. No food or beverages, other than water, are allowed inside the church, but light refreshments could be served immediately outside the church.
If you are interested in reserving the Chapel for a future event, please call or e-mail Mrs. Barbara Panowitz, 443-504-5542 or firstname.lastname@example.org
