Frying Pan Baptist Meeting House

Frying Pan Baptist Meeting House

2615 Centreville Rd.
Herndon, Va.


The church building on this site was built in 1791 on land deeded to the congregation by ROBERT "COUNCILLOR" CARTER. Baptist meetings are thought to have been held in this area as early as 1740. There were only 16 remaining formal headstones, but the church minutes from 1791-1879 list an additional 32 burials. Many graves are marked by fieldstones. In 1988 the ownership of the meeting house and cemetery passed from the last surviving trustee to the Fairfax County Park Authority which maintains the building as a community meeting place.
