St. John's Church, St. John's Parish, Protestant Episcopal, Washington County, Hagerstown, South Prospect Street: parish registers 1816-1863; vestry minutes 1787-1873, 1930-1963.
St. John's Church was established in 1787 when a small congregation meeting in the county court house elected a vestry. A brick church was soon built, located on Mulberry Street between Antietam and Baltimore Streets. In 1821, a lot on Jonathan Street was purchased for the construction of a new church. This structure was damaged by fire in 1866 or 1867 and repaired, but another fire in 1871 completed destroyed the building. By 1875, a new church, located on the corner of Prospect and Antietam Streets was completed.

The graveyard located at the site of the original church is preserved by the congregation.
