St. Mary's Church is a historic Episcopal church located at Emmorton, Harford County, Maryland. It is a small Gothic Revival parish church. It was built about 1851 and carefully designed in the "Early English" manner with gray rubble stone walls, cut Port Deposit granite trim, and a very steep slate-covered roof. It features an ornamental chimney, with a fleur-de-lis, the symbol of the Virgin Mary, in a bas-relief panel. It is the only church in America to have a complete set of stained glass windows designed by William Butterfield, the English Gothic Revival architect. Johannes Oertel did the chancel paintings.[2]

It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.[1]
