  My son giving the signal to fire a cannon

I took the older children down here to experience Maryland History. Special events scheduled on weekends from March through December offer visitors unique opportunities to work alongside professional archaeologists, churn butter, watch a militia drill, or shoot a bow and arrow. The picture shows my son giving the signal to fire a cannon

In addtion to the reconstructed State House of 1676 (where I got to play Margaret Brent), there are Smith's Ordinary, and the Godiah Spray Tobacco Plantation, a working colonial farm, tell a unique story about the colony that became Maryland.

Address: Maryland Route 5
Directions: From VA - I-495 over the Woodrow Wilson Bridge to Route 5 South. Follow Rte. 5 through Leonardtown and continue for approximately 20 miles until you reach St. Mary's City.
