Old Wye Church is a historic Episcopal church at Wye Mills, Talbot County, Maryland. It is a one-story, gable-roofed, rectangular brick structure originally constructed in 1717–21. It was extensively renovated in 1854 and restored to its 18th-century appearance in 1947–49. It embodies the distinctive characteristics of Georgian Anglican architecture in its brick construction, semicircular-arched window openings, shouldered buttresses, rectangular plan, and simple massing.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1984.[1]
