Built of red brick with Flemish bond and glazed headers, significant interior features include a semi-circular chancel, arched ceiling, crowned columns, and boxed pews.  During the War of 1812, the British vandalized the village of Chaptico, doing extensive damage to Christ Church and desecrating its cemetery.  Several members of the Francis Scott Key family are buried in the Key Family vault.  The church is on the National Register of Historic Places.
