I can't think of a better place to hold a funeral than at the Watters Meetinghouse. If there is a more desolate spot in Maryland, I am unaware of it. The meetinghouse (aka Thomas Run Church) was built in the 1840's, replacing an earlier structure that dates back to the late 18th century. You can read all about its history here. The building has been described as Greek Revival, but that's a bit of a stretch IMHO; I think it's better described as a box with holes in it. Anyway, the building and setting combined make for one stark setting.
