The name of the church is Our Lady of The Pines. It is a short drive from the magnificent Blackwater Falls State Park.
(Please see more photos and text below.)
Roadside America devotes another page on its Web site to many other tiny churches around the country. I guess some might dispute if the church in Silver Lake is the smallest in the Lower 48, but it certainly has to be in the running for the tiniest as well as the best kept up and most charming church.
If you are also seeking a small house to vacation in to go along with your visit to Our Lady of the Pines, please check out my post on Blue Moon Rising in Deep Creek Lake, Md., about a eco resort that features all small houses.
If the smallest church was not enough of a reason to visit Silver Lake, behind the church is a post office, and you guessed it, its said the be the smallest mailing office in the Lower 48.
