How to Help Our Society
For over 30 years, Tudor Hall has been home of the St. Mary's County Historical Society (SMCHS). The story behind the Society's ownership of this historic treasure is one of community cooperation and individual generosity so typical of Southern Maryland. Back in the early 80's, after serving as the local library for 36 years, the building's future was uncertain after the library outgrew the space and moved to another location. Recognizing Tudor Hall's historical and architectural significance, the Society stepped in and negotiated an agreement that brought together the Davidson heirs, the county government, a local lender, and many generous individuals in a plan to convey the property to the Society which in turn agreed to preserve, renovate, and maintain the structure and make it available to the public.
To help the society maintain our goals and fulfill our missions please select one of our campaigns and help anyway you can. Just as our community came together in 1985, please consider donating today.
SMCHS is a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization, donations to which are deductible to the full extent of the law. This Society’s current financial statement is available upon request. Information submitted to the State of Maryland under the Charitable Solicitations Act is available from the Office of the Secretary of State for the cost of copying and postage.
