Get a sense of some of the state's history by visiting a city that prides itself on preserving the past.

Historic St. Mary's City

Head to Historic St. Mary's City to see the site where Maryland began. St. Mary's City offers a variety of living history encounters, hands-on activities, archaeology, and nature trails to learn about the wildlife that has been on-site since long before the people have. Costumed interpreters take you back to 17th century life during Maryland's first years, and allow you to try your hand at the skills early settlers would have needed to survive. Learn even more as you listen to their stories of Maryland's first capital, and of the people that immigrated from around the world to settle there. Visitors can see many facets of the state's history, including the Godiah Spray Tobacco Plantation, a working colonial farm, and the Maryland Dove, a replica ship. It's no wonder the museum is recognized as one of America's best-preserved colonial archaeology sites. The Freedom of Conscience Monument at the entrance to the city was erected almost 80 years ago to commemorate a 1649 Act passed by the General Assembly mandating religious tolerance that set the foundation for the First Amendment. You can also wander various hiking and walking trails that wind through the museum property and around the grounds.

Where to Camp

Camping is available nearby at Point Lookout State Park.

Small RV Rental in Southern Maryland

If you rent a small RV in southern Maryland, you can drive the Religious Freedom Tour, visiting quaint old churches that allowed early settlers escaping religious persecution to worship how they wished. The tour winds by St. Ignatius Catholic Church in Chapel Point, Trinity Episcopal Church in St. Mary’s City, and St. Clements Island State Park.

Point Lookout State Park

Point Lookout State Park has beaches, a boat launch, fishing, and camping at the park. Visitors can also see the beautiful Point Lookout Lighthouse on the grounds as well. However, the park also has a darker history. During the Civil War, Point Lookout served as a notorious prison camp where over 52,000 Confederate soldiers were imprisoned and more than 4,000 of them died. The region has been called the most haunted place in America. A museum on-site now recounts the Civil War history of the park.

After visiting the museum, board the ferry to explore St. Clement's Island State Park and the 40-acre island where Maryland's first European settlers landed. Along with learning about the history of the colonists, visitors to the park can fish, hike, hunt, and picnic on the island.
