Baltimore and many other Maryland Cities
Founded in 1729, Baltimore is the second largest seaport in the Mid-Atlantic United States and is situated closer to Midwestern markets than any other major seaport on the East Coast. Baltimore’s Inner Harbor was once the second leading port of entry for immigrants to the United States and a major manufacturing center.
LDS Members make up .30% of the population of Baltimore. In the state of Maryland there are 40,854 members in 8 stakes, 65 wards, 13 branches, 2 missions, and 1 temple.
After a 10-hour debate with a Campbellite minister in Leitersburgh, Washington County, Latter-day Saint missionary Erastus Snow baptized 11 people. He began preaching in Maryland with three other missionaries in 1837. Snow baptized one convert, an 89-year-old man, after cutting through 18 inches of ice. In 1842, the Mormon Expositor, a Church paper, began printing for a time in Baltimore. Maryland’s Church activity slowed from 1844-99 when many Church members gathered west. In 1899, missionary work was reorganized in the state. The Church’s temple in Kensington is one of Maryland’s most prominent landmarks and was completed in 1974.
