It stands stalwart among the golden cornfields and verdant pastures in the horse country of northern Baltimore County, a church steeped in history and gazing toward the future. St. James Episcopal Church has survived the birth of the nation, the turmoil of the Civil War and the poor fortunes of an outpost chapel. Revolutionary War soldiers are said to be buried in the church cemetery. And George Washington is thought to have gazed at the pastoral sanctuary while eating breakfast at a hostelry across the road.

Although urban legends abound in cities throughout the South, perhaps none have been more enduring than the tales of the existence of a slave escape tunnel beneath the Orchard Street Church in Baltimore's Seton Hill neighborhood. Despite the lack of authentic historical documentation to substantiate the claims, the location continues to be regarded by many as a 19th-century stop on the Underground Railroad. Much of the surviving oral history is filled with the buzz words that historians dread, such as "it is alleged," "oral tradition contends" and "what is believed to be."

The stained glass windows of St. Stanislaus Kostka Roman Catholic Church in Fells Point are hard to see. The floral designs are shrouded by discolored plexiglass, but they are the clear focus of a dispute between developers who want to replace them with plain glass and the Polish congregants who don't want them touched. Developers who want to convert the church into a commercial or residential property say that without natural light, the building is useless. Members of the Polish community, though, say that the windows of their former church are an important legacy of their faith and history.

Architect Michael Murphy has restored some of Baltimore's most significant churches, including St. Vincent de Paul, St. Ignatius and Corpus Christi. He was part of the design team that showed how the historic Hippodrome Theatre could be brought back to life as the centerpiece of downtown's France-Merrick Performing Arts Center. He oversaw the transformation of the Maryland Masonic Temple to a conference and banquet facility known as the Tremont Grand. For those and other achievements, Murphy this month will receive one of the highest tributes his profession offers: induction into the prestigious College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects.
