Built by Daniel Page it served as chapel of ease for the northern part of St. Paul's Parish, Prince George's County, until 1850. Since 1850 it has been parish church of St. Thomas' Parish, Prince George's County.

Always open for prayer and worship, the blessed sacrament has been continuously reserved for many years.
