The Church in USA: Maryland

After a 10-hour debate with a Campbellite minister in Leitersburgh, Washington County, Elder Erastus Snow baptized 11 people. He began preaching in Maryland with three other missionaries in 1837. Elder Snow baptized one convert, an 89-year-old man, after cutting through 18 inches of ice.

The Washington D.C. Temple, actually located in Kensington, Maryland, is one of the state’s most prominent landmarks and was completed in 1974.
