Marker to commemorate a German Church in Carroll County, MD

Not much is known about this church, but it was probably built in 1760 and served as the place of worship for evangelical Lutherans. The earliest European settlers in Carroll County were predominantly Pennsylvania Dutch from southeast Pennsylvania and English from the Tidewater region of Maryland. German was the predominant language of Carroll County until the Civil War. German was most heavily spoken in the northern and western parts of the county. The towns of Hampstead, Manchester, and Taneytown had German majorities. English-speakers were a minority and were concentrated in southern Carroll.[
