Barratt’s Chapel & Museum

Back to Home


Constructed in 1780, Barratt’s Chapel is a house of worship recognized as “The Cradle of American Methodism.” Pioneers Thomas Coke and Francis Asbury met here in 1784 to establish the Methodist Church as an independent denomination. The chapel looks much as it did two centuries ago.

Admission is FREE

Tours of the Chapel and adjoining museum are available Saturdays & Sundays 1:30pm-4:30pm and by appointment for groups
