Houses of Worship
Like many other colonial settlements East New Market welcomed those escaping religious persecution in Europe.
That was until the ascension to the British throne of Anglicans William and Mary. Protestantism was declared the "church of state" until the American Revolution guaranteed religious liberty. Trinity United Methodist Church was built in 1845. This and the Baptist Church are two of a number of faith communities in the town today.
Some other notable historic church structures include the following:
St. Stephan's Episcopal Church
Mount Zion Methodist Episcopal Church
Salem German Evangelical And Reformed Church
In 2002 this church was thoroughly renovated and converted to a private home after being abandoned for many years. It was built in 1888 and may be one of the oldest structures of this denomination in Maryland.
