About Mowbray chapel

Rebuilt, Renovated and Renewed.

In 1864, the land at 5179 Quaker Neck Road was purchased by the Methodist Episcopal Church to build Walton Chapel.

Twenty-five years later, it was destroyed by fire. Under the energetic leadership of Pastor W.R. Mowbray, the chapel was rebuilt and renamed Mowbray. Today, it’s one of only a few true Greek Revival structures in Kent County.

Along with the Cliffs school, Mowbray served not only as a chapel, but as a focus for social activity for the community of Cliffs (or Cliff City) and the neighboring farms.

Over the years, the chapel was deserted and fell into a ruinous condition. It remained abandoned until 1963, when it along with the surrounding acreage was sold. The interior was cleaned and a new roof added to sustain Mowbray but not transform it.
