John Wesley Preservation Society

Oxford Maryland John Wesley Church Museum
Visit Site

The John Wesley Methodist Episcopal Church in Oxford is built on a tiny patch of land outside the waterfront town of Oxford. For generations, a racially mixed congregation worshipped in this little church, an unassuming one-room building without a steeple or indoor plumbing. A John Wesley activist, Nellie Leatherberry found a way to have a 9’ x 12’ “cook shop” constructed. Over the years, it nearly tripled in size and operated until the late 1970s. Nellie’s Cook Shop now houses the church’s documentary photography and oral history transcriptions.

The Church and cook shop are open to the public for docent tours from 10 a.m. until 4 p.m. the first Saturday of the month, May through November. Additional hours are every Saturday, 10 a.m. until noon, May through November.
