At Historic St. Mary's City, a museum on the site of Maryland’s first capital, explore an un-ordinary ordinary, help a planter tend his fields, and step on board a tall ship. Discover the world of the Yaocomaco people and the place where Roman Catholics first worshipped in the British colonies. At the St. John’s Site Museum, gain insight into ways historians and archaeologists reconstruct the past and the ways Lord Baltimore’s design for Maryland foreshadowed the First Amendment rights guaranteed by our Constitution. Take an easy drive from the metro areas and discover one of the nation’s most beautiful historic places in tidewater Southern Maryland.
