A beautiful chapel, high on a hill. Adjoining the chapel is a large cemetery with gravestones dating from 1830. The old chapel is the only Catholic church built before the American revolution in Prince George's County.[7]

The current chapel building was built on the hill circa 1827 at the east end of the original chapel and is constructed of undressed stone, with a gable roof.[7] In 1853, a fire destroyed the interior of the building but left the stone walls standing.[7] The interior was rebuilt by 1855.[7] In 1876 a wood-frame bell tower was added to the church at the east end of the gable.[7] - from https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sacred_Heart_Church_(Bowie,_Maryland)
