A high style ceremony in an intimate setting...

As Mrs. Dahlgren so eloquently described in her book, South Mountain Magic, the location of Dahlgren Chapel, atop South Mountain between Middletown and Boonsboro, is exquisite! Mrs. Dahlgren was an accomplished author, Washington D.C. socialite and the wife of Rear Admiral Dahlgren, inventor of the Dahlgren gun during the Civil War and confidant to President Abraham Lincoln.

The first wedding held at Dahlgren Chapel was that of her daughter, Ulrica Dahlgren and Major Josiah Pierce. Upholding this tradition, the Central Maryland Heritage League is proud to make the chapel available to private services, events, and weddings.

The chapel seats 80 people and with its beautiful marble altar, stained glass windows, and aisle nearly 40 feet long it has provided a perfect location for wedding couples for more than 100 years!

    We loved this church! Had a May wedding which was perfect because there is no air conditioning. They are so nice and easy to work with.

    Thank you, Jennifer. I am so pleased to hear your response.

    Everyone there was very helpful whether by email, phone or in person. They were friendly, gracious and quite flexible (I was late to an appointment [to see the chapel] due to construction). The chapel itself is GORGEOUS. They even helped me find a minister when my own fell through due to unforeseen circumstances.

    When we discovered the Dahlgren Chapel online, we knew it would be perfect for our small ceremony. We made an appointment that week with Martha Gude, who showed us the chapel and answered our questions. In the next few weeks, Martha and the rest of the staff that takes care of the chapel assisted us with securing the proper event insurance and so on, everyone was very helpful. Our ceremony went off without a hitch, and we got wonderful photos in and around the chapel.
