Tudor Hall was the home of Phillip Key, Francis Scott Key's uncle. It was willed to the county, and served for awhile as the main library, and then as county offices.

Unusual features include a hanging staircase, and the triple fireplace in the kitchen. The gardens with the ha-ha wall have been restored by the students at the Tech Center.

It is now the home of the St. Mary's County Historical Society

Open 10-2 Mon-Fri.
The Research Library is open 12:00 PM ? 4:00 PM Thursday and Friday, 10:00 AM ? 4:00 PM Saturday.
Admission required.

Fortunately I don't need to pay admission as I am quite familiar with the building, having visited regularly when it was the county's main library. The kitchen with the triple fireplace was the children's room.
