OUR HISTORY

Sitting in the center of the Woolford Community of Dorchester County, Maryland, is the Milton Methodist Church.  The Church began in 1881 when William Hugh Neild and George Abbott started construction on land owned by the School Commissioners of Dorchester County. 

Church Membership was initially aligned with the Methodist Episcopal Church South and has been in continuous operation since 1881.

  

You can find a beautiful display of local artifacts some dating back over 100 years in our newly renovated Fellowship Hall.
