Expand your interests or build a new passion. Here are some topics our visitors love: War of 1812, Civil War, Religious Heritage, Lighthouses, African-American Heritage and Amish Communities
African-American history in Maryland begins in 1634 with the arrival of indentured servant Mathias de Sousa, one of the 140 settlers who first traveled here and established Maryland. While de Sousa’s story is inspiring—he voted in the early legislature, as tobacco became the basis of Southern Maryland’s economy, slavery became entrenched. Our historic sites and museums such as Sotterley Plantation, the United States Colored Troops Memorial Monument and Drayden African-American Schoolhouse, tell the story of our community while mirroring the larger struggles of our nation.
Amish and Mennonite Community
During the 1930s, Amish and Mennonite families left Lancaster, Pennsylvania, and relocated to St. Mary’s County. Travel scenic back roads, explore farm markets and visit farm shops offering items such as leather goods, furniture and quilts. Visit farms with signs posted at entrances. All shops are closed on Sunday
The Potomac River separates St. Mary’s County residents from neighbors in Virginia. Physically part of the North, but with cultural ties to the South, our Civil War history is rich but little known. While “secesh” passions ran high among white citizens, over 600 African-Americans from St. Mary’s County served in the Union Army. Two were awarded Medals of Honor. Explore one of the North’s largest prison camps at Point Lookout, visit our numerous monuments and uncover amazing stories off the beaten path.
The waters off the shore of the Chesapeake Bay could be treacherous. For over a hundred years, lighthouses made navigating the Bay safer. From the oldest lighthouse on the Potomac to one of the most haunted in America, St. Mary’s has great lighthouses—each with its own unique story. Explore all four!
War of 1812
The Chesapeake Region was a major theater of war during the War of 1812. The British Fleet sailed up the Chesapeake Bay, raiding and invading virtually unchallenged along the Patuxent and Potomac Rivers. Visit St. Mary’s County sites along the Star Spangled Banner National Historic Trail and Byway. View exhibits, and enjoy War of 1812 programs.
