St. Mary’s County Historical Society

Our Mission

The St. Mary’s County Historical Society 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
Historical Society's Research Center, through publications such as The Chronicles of St. Mary’s and Tudor Hall Times as well as through programs and exhibits. The Historical Society also provides stewardship of 18th century Tudor Hall which serves as its headquarters.  
The St Mary's County Historical Society is a 501 (c)(3) organization. Your membership and support are welcome.
