This place is almost as old as Plymouth Rock and Jamestown yet few Americans (including Marylanders) are aware of its existence, let alone historical significance. St. Mary's City was the only English location in North America that was settled by English CATHOLICS. It served as...More

I'm rating this a 3 because it was a visit that didn't happen and I want to share why it didn't. The most important thing I didn't know was that Saint Mary's City is a 100% walking tour. It is a "city" established in 1634...More

Thank you for visiting Historic St. Mary's City, we appreciate that you took the time to come see us. Our location is, in many ways, the reason why the archaeology of Maryland's first capital is so well preserved. We are sorry that you didn’t have...More

The actors/guides were wonderful and informative. They were really helpful at describing exactly what you would have seen back in the day. Admission was a little steep but worth it.

I really enjoyed the information we found here at St. Mary's City. We never did locate the Visitors Center as it was poorly signed and after later research saw it was way off the beaten path from the main attractions. Most of the buildings and...More
