St. Mary’s County Historical Society

Mission Statement

The St. Mary’s County Historical Society (SMCHS) collects, preserves, researches and interprets the history of St. Mary’s County, Maryland.

Its collections are held in trust for the use and education of the public.  They are primarily composed of documentary and archival materials with a focus on the county’s people, places, and events.  This information is made available at the Research Center maintained by SMCHS, through publications such as The Chronicles of St. Mary’s and Tudor Hall Times as well as through programs and exhibits.

SMCHS also provides stewardship of 18th century Tudor Hall which functions as its main facility.  We welcome donations and are a 501 (c)(3) organization.
