History

Historic St. Mary's City

Historic St. Mary's City, the site of the fourth permanent settlement in British North America, Maryland's first capital, and the birthplace of religious toleration, invites you to explore the lifeways of Maryland's first citizens.

Historic St. Mary's City is an exciting mix of colorful living history and fascinating archaeology, all set in a beautiful tidewater landscape. Lord Baltimore's 17th-century capital stands ready to be rediscovered.

Sotterley Plantation

Older than Mount Vernon, older than Monticello, older than the nation itself, Sotterley Plantation stands majestically on the banks of the Patuxent River. It is the only remaining Tidewater Plantation in Maryland that is open to the public with a full range of visitor activities and educational programs. Sotterley's significant architecture features the early 18th-century Manor House, a rare slave cabin, and a full array of outbuildings set amidst seventy acres of rolling fields, gardens and riverfront.

St. Clement's Island

Otherwise known as the “birthplace of Maryland”; Maryland’s first colonists arrived on this site in 1634. Currently, it is the site of the Potomac River Museum which is a distinct destination interpreting the arrival of the concepts of religious toleration and separation of church and state.
