This church instituted in 1797, was named for the Wm. Carroll family, among its first members. The present building, erected about 1835, was restored in 1951-52 under the leadership of Bishop John H. Baker. Rev. Nelson Osborn (1797-1873) was a lifelong member and minister for many years. The renowned Bishop Francis Asbury wrote in his diary, Friday, Nov. 21, 1799, we drove 16 miles to Carroll´s Meeting House, a new Log Cabin in the Woods. Some of the people of the Congregation are from the East and West Parts of Maryland. I felt the Lord was with them. We have the Kitchen, House and Chamber all in one and no closet but the woods.
