Strawbridge Methodist Church

Strawbridge Methodist Church is located at 1630 Park Ave. Baltimore 21217
A picturesque building in one of Baltimore’s fashionable neighborhoods  Sadly it could not attract enough  neighbors to be supportive parishioners. It recently closed as a symptom of too many Methodist churches in too small of a geographic area.   It houses an intact and unaltered   Hook & Hastings ,opus 1336. Installed in 1887 as a new instrument. It features an unusual open pipe arrangement with a detached console.
