HOOPERSVILLE — The Hooper’s Island Memorial Church Hall, historically the Bethel Methodist Church, is a single-story gable-front frame structure that stands on the east side of the Hooper’s Island Road north of the village of Hoopersville, on Middle Hoopers Island.
Built in 1886, the rectangular frame church is supported by a synthetic brick on block foundation, which replaced its brick pier foundation.

The exterior is clad with vinyl siding and. the steeply pitched gable roof is covered with asphalt shingles.
Joining the church on the lot is a small graveyard plot with nineteenth and twentieth-century burials, and a decorative cast iron fence frames a few markers.
The Hooper’s Island Memorial Church Hall was built as the Bethel Methodist Church. The single-story, gable-front frame structure faces west with the roof oriented on an east/west axis, information from the Maryland Historical Trust says.
The west (main) facade is defined by a single double-door opening topped by a three-light transom. Fixed above the transom is a wooden sign inscribed “Hooper’s Memorial Church Hall, 1886.”

The edge of the roof is finished with a slightly extended eave. The south side elevation is three bays across with the two westernmost bays filled with large six-over-six sash windows.
The easternmost bay is pierced by a side door opening, which has a modem replacement door, and the door opening is topped by a large six-pane window. The north side is marked by three, large size six-over-six sash windows.
The rear (east) wall features a small, three-sided apse, which has a blind back wall and small two-over-two sash windows on each side.
