St. Paul’s Chapel on Dutch Neck in Waldoboro was built in 1885 (dedicated in 1886), on land donated by Capt. Aaron Stahl in 1883. The historic chapel is located next to the Dutch Neck Schoolhouse (District Number One), built in 1883. Originally, regular church services were held in the non-denominational chapel year-round. Later, an affiliation with the Methodist Episcopal Church provided seminarians to conduct services at the six area chapels on the church “circuit”. Now, an annual service is held, which this year is scheduled for Wednesday, Aug. 16.

Organized in 1883, the St. Paul’s Chapel Society serves to preserve the chapel and schoolhouse and hosts the annual church service. The supper and other events help to raise funds for the preservation of these two buildings.
