City of College Park

Built in 1817, the Old Parish House originally served the Calvert Mansion as a dairy barn and is one of only two surviving outbuildings from the Riversdale Estate. It is one-story high with a gable roof, segmentally arched windows and side walls supported by brick buttresses. From 1894 to 1930, the building housed the congregation of St. Andrew's Episcopal Church and once a new church was constructed, became its parish house. After 1957, the building was the headquarters of the College Park Woman's Club until the City of College Park became owner in 1998. It is now used as a public meeting place and rented for special events.
