Historic Old Saint Anne's Church


Historic Old Saint Anne’s Church is located on the corner of South Broad Street and St. Anne's Church Road in Middletown, Delaware. Established 1704-1705 by a missionary society of the Church of England in what was then known as Appoquinimy (present day Middletown and Odessa) and named in honor of Queen Anne, English monarch at the time of the parish's founding, the Saint Anne’s has two historic church buildings in which to worship: Old Saint Anne's Church (built 1768-1772) and Saint Anne's "town church" (built in 1872 and destroyed in the Great Fire of Middletown in 1882 and rebuilt later that year). Old Saint Anne's Church stands on the top of a hill at one of the branches of the Appoquinimink Creek; it is surrounded by its historic churchyard and is adjacent to the Old Saint Anne's Oak, a white oak tree which is documented to be more than 400 years old. Special services are offered at Old Saint Anne's Church throughout the year on Sundays and Christian Holy Days. Tours of Old Saint Anne's are available by appointment; please contact the Church Office for more information.
