                          AREA INFORMATION


Southern Maryland is where Maryland's history began when 140 brave colonists established the forth permanent settlement in British North America. As time marched on, native woodland trails gave way to the rolling roads of tobacco plantations, and square-riggers gave way to steamboats and skip jacks. Southern Maryland's unique past is richly  preserved in its numerous historic sites,  dynamic museums, and rural scenic byways all awaiting your discovery. Southern Maryland is a natural wonderland, with fossil-filled cliffs and sculpted sandy beaches, lighthouses standing watch over limitless waters and an American Heritage River teeming with largemouth and striped bass.
