Historic St. Mary's City is museum of living history and archaeology on the site of Maryland's first capital. Step on board a tall ship of the late 17th century like the one that accompanied Lord Baltimore on his first expedition to Maryland. Visit a tobacco plantation, where it's always 1661. Interact with costumed interpreters at the Town Center and get impressed at a print house. At the Woodland Indian Hamlet, discover Yaocomico culture and how the first people interacted with Maryland's settlers. Tour a reconstruction of the Brick Chapel, a symbol of religious toleration practiced here long before it was mandated by the Constitution. Visit St. John's Site Museum for a better understanding of how scholars use archaeology and historical evidence to recreate the past. Exhibits are open seasonally from the middle of March through November. Special programs take place throughout the year.
