Addison Chapel (St. Matthew's Church)
5610 Addison Road, Seat Pleasant
Built in 1810, renovated circa 1905 -- Addison Chapel is a simple, gable-roof brick chapel with Stick-style wooden gable decoration. Its walls are laid in Flemish bond and it rests on a stone foundation with galleting. Addison Chapel was built as the upper chapel of St. John's Episcopal Church at Broad Creek, replacing an earlier frame structure; circa 1905 its roof was raised to the present steep pitch. It is an excellent example of an early chapel form. Many prominent individuals of the Bladensburg area are buried in the cemetery which surrounds the church.
