Abstract: The purpose of this historic structure report was to investigate the eighteenthcentury brick structure known as “the chapel,” located on the Compton Bassett property in Upper Marlboro, Maryland. All aspects of the chapel were investigated with the goal of providing treatment recommendations for this significant historic resource. At present, the chapel faces a number of serious structural issues that impact the preservation of the building. The chapel was investigated thoroughly in an attempt to understand its history, account for all conditions affecting the structure, and devise the most appropriate treatment plan for the building. In conjunction with this investigation, documentary evidence was used to develop a historical context for the building. The result is a thorough building history and set of specifically tailored treatment recommendations that can be used as a guide for the development of a preservation based management and treatment plan for the Compton Bassett chapel.
