Queen Anne’s County Unveils Two New Brochures

Two new publications promoting Queen Anne’s County as a tourist destination are now being distributed. One features maps and legends to destinations all over Queen Anne’s County, and the other promotes the newly renovated Historic Christ Church.

The Queen Anne’s County Department of Economic Development, Agriculture and Tourism’s new Queen Anne’s County Hospitality Map features a comprehensive county road map, including local roads as well as highways, and symbols for everything from accommodations to shopping and historic sites to antiques.

The full color map has break out insets of Kent Island and Grasonville, Kent Narrows, Queenstown, Centreville, Church Hill and Sudlersville for more detailed information about those specific areas.

The map was a cooperative effort between the county and the Maryland Department of Business and Economic Development, which funded a portion of the project with a grant. It is available at the Chesapeake Exploration Center in Chester, the Queen Anne’s County Liberty Building in Centreville and in hotels, restaurants and businesses throughout the county.

Brides and grooms are discovering the wonders of Queen Anne’s County when they search for their perfect wedding destination and those looking for old world charm on their special day will find it at Historic Christ Church in Stevensville. This new brochure gives a general overview of the church, which has seating for over 100, a working organ and private changing areas for the bridal party.

Historic Christ Church is listed on the National Register of Historic Places and sections of the building date back to the 13th century. Renovation of the church began in 2005 with a structural assessment, before work was done on the bell tower, the east wall of the sanctuary and the chimneys. The wood floors, windows and siding were then restored and repairs were made to the plaster before the final interior and exterior painting. In 2009, the Queen Anne’s County Commissioners officially re-dedicated the building to the community.

Historic Christ Church is owned by Queen Anne’s County and managed by Friends of Historic Christ Church, a group of citizens appointed by the County Commissioners.
