2022-2023 Business Directory & Community Guide


EARLY HISTORY OF THE CHAMBER 65 Years and Going Strong: Early History of the Charles County Chamber of Commerce From the earliest days of our country, up to the mid-20th century, Charles County had changed little from its agrarian roots. Following World War II, the county began to grow and develop from a predominately farm community to the vital and economically diverse suburban county that it is today. The Charles County Chamber of Commerce was born in response to negative articles published in the 1950s sensational national magazines, Man’s Conquest and Real Adventure. Focusing on a very narrow aspect, those articles described our county as “a dreary, rural region which derived its main income from the raising and sale of tobacco…until slot machine gambling was legalized in 1949”. Because of the gambling influence, the county was further characterized in those articles as “an unsavory place inhabited by people of low mentality, duped into prostration out of greed and the promise of low taxes” and as a “modern day Sodom populated by people hell-bent for moral degradation relying on people’s gambling weakness”. Understandably, the stinging attacks mobilized a group of concerned citizens to counteract such unflattering characterizations of the county and its people. Community and business leaders from La Plata, Waldorf and Indian Head held a series of meetings to develop a strategy to encourage favorable and factual publicity about the county. Ultimately, in early 1956, the Chamber was formed to execute the agreed upon strategy to counteract the false and misleading narrative presented in the articles. The establishment of the Chamber was met with enthusiasm, and initial membership was over 200 local businesses. Incorporated on January 20, 1956, and with a Board of Directors established, the initial Chamber leadership consisted of Reed W. McDonagh of La Plata, President; John McWilliams of Indian Head, Vice-President; Henry Bartsch, Secretary; and Noel P. Dodson, Treasurer, both of Waldorf. All the local newspapers announced the new organization to champion the county with front page stories, and the new Chamber was mentioned in columns in the Washington Post and Evening Star. The positive press was a good start. That was followed by the Chamber playing an important role in bringing the American Forestry Association Annual Meeting to the county later in 1956 where 450 delegates from all over the country met for several days of activities and additional good press. The Chamber leadership, however, saw even more of an opportunity to be a voice in moving the county in a positive direction by supporting needed programs and policies to meet the county’s needs of the future. Over the next decade, the Chamber was instrumental in www.charlescountychamber.org

the establishment of the first county planning commission in 1958, on which two of the Chamber leadership served. By 1961, the Chamber was successful in supporting county officials in the adoption of the first zoning ordinance for the county. By the mid-60s, the Chamber successfully promoted the establishment of the Waldorf Sanitary Commission and participated in the establishment of the first county Economic Development Commission which was supported by the Chamber’s Committee of 100, whose members volunteered their time and committed their financial support to encourage diverse economic development. It is not unreasonable to state that without the establishment and early accomplishments of the Chamber of Commerce, Charles County might now look significantly different. Over the succeeding decades to current day, the Chamber continues to promote diverse economic and business development by supporting vital policies and programs that lead to the success and prosperity of its members and the business community, while uplifting the quality of life of the citizens of Charles County.

MESSAGE FROM COUNTY COMMISSIONER PRESIDENT This has been of time of significant transition, as our community slowly returns to normal after moving through an historic pandemic. Our economy is improving, and we are eagerly looking forward to new opportunities for growth and revitalization of our community and welcoming visitors and tourists to explore all we have to offer. Our local businesses have been essential contributors to the county’s capacity to bring back a thriving economy. Our Board of County Commissioners has worked through this evolving time to make sure businesses have the support they need to maintain operations. We approved legislation to support smart growth, adopted zoning changes, provided tax credits to rehabilitate blighted properties, and streamlined our permitting processes to make sure Charles County is open for business. Our economic development partners facilitated trainings, hosted roundtable discussions, met virtually, and reached out to ensure funding, sources of financing, and related services are available to all.

18

Equity is also important to our Board of Commissioners. As the 2020 Census has revealed, our county is growing not only in population, but in diversity. It is important that we continue to provide for our evolving communities. We completed a disparity study focusing on our procurement process, and we passed a resolution highlighting our intent to create equitable opportunities, embrace diversity, and address disparities. It is vital that as our community changes our practices and policies change, so we can serve with equity and inclusion of all our residents and business partners. With strong prevention and treatments now available for COVID-19, our community can once again meet in person to network, connect, and engage with one another. We appreciate the partnership of the Chamber of Commerce to bring us together to facilitate connections and build partnerships that help our community prosper and thrive. We are grateful for what we have achieved together, to make sure Charles County is a desirable location for people to live, work, and play, both now and in the future. Reuben B. Collins, II, Esq. President, Board of Charles County Commissioners

LOCATION AND TRANSPORTATION Charles County, Maryland, a suburb of Washington DC, provides easy access to the DC Metro area, Baltimore, Richmond, and the U.S. East Coast. Located south of the District of Columbia along the Potomac River, Charles County is under an hour by car from Ronald Reagan National Airport, the nation’s Capital, the White House, and major federal government offices. The County’s northern urbanized areas about are an hour from Baltimore and Annapolis and 90 minutes from Richmond, Virginia. The unincorporated community of Waldorf, at the northern edge of the County, is home to about half of the county’s population and serves as a regional commercial center. U.S. Route 301 and Maryland Route 5 connect Waldorf and the County with the National Capital Beltway – about 15 miles north of the county line – as well as to northern and eastern Maryland suburbs. Maryland Route 228 runs east/west through Charles County connecting Route 30 in Waldorf to Maryland Route 210 in the west and providing the commercial core with another major arterial access to the Capital Beltway at National Harbor. To the south, US Route 301 connects Charles County with King George, Virginia, about 75 miles from Richmond via the Harry Nice/Mac Middleton Bridge over the Potomac River. A replacement bridge currently under construction is on schedule to open at the end of 2022 with increased traffic capacity to facilitate travel and commerce through the region and provide an east coast alternative to I-95. Charles County has three incorporated municipalities. The Town of La Plata is the largest with a population of 10,159 and extensive new commercial, office, and

www.charlescountychamber.org

residential development. La Plata is the County Seat and home to government and legal offices as well a large, regional hospital. The Town of Indian Head on the western side of the County adjoins the United States Navy military installation, Naval Support Facility Indian Head, which is today a Department of Defense (“DoD”) military research and development base including the Navy’s highest concentration of energetics scientists and researchers. Port Tobacco served as the first County seat and was a major port during colonial days. Today, the community includes a small number of historic buildings and homes and has a population less than 100. The County is well served by three major airports located within 50 miles: Regan National Airport, Dulles International, and Baltimore/Washington International Thurgood Marshall Airport. Additionally, the privatelyowned general aviation Maryland Airport is located in the community of Bryans Road, just off Route 210. A CSX rail line parallels Route 301 through the County’s industrial areas, from the northern border to the southern tip at the Potomac River. Bordered on three sides by water, Charles County has approximately 300 miles of shoreline. Charles is one of three counties that make up the region known as Southern Maryland; St. Mary’s and Calvert Counties are the other two. Together, the three jurisdictions make up a peninsula between the Potomac River and the Chesapeake Bay, with the Patuxent River in the middle and hundreds of miles of shoreline for recreation, commerce, and a unique quality of life.

21


LOCATION AND TRANSPORTATION Maryland Airport Maryland Airport is a privately owned, general aviation facility in western Charles County, located four miles east of the Town of Indian Head and 20 miles south of Washington, D.C. The location provides easy access to National Harbor and the Washington beltway via Maryland Route 210. Maryland Airport is a designated reliever airport for general aviation traffic at the Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport. In 2013, runway improvements enabled the airport to serve a wider range of aircraft, including corporate jet service and cargo transportation. Further improvements approved by the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) include an additional runway extension, a taxiway for aircraft parallel to the runway, a new terminal building, and other enhancements.

The airport was built by Bauserman Services in 1943 and was owned and operated by the family until 2018 when it was purchased by PSM Holdings. The new owners have continued to invest in the property, and their efforts have paid off. Aircraft based at the airport and aircraft operations (take off and landings) continue to increase year after year. Charles County recognizes Maryland Airport as a key economic development asset, and the County is moving forward with steps to change the land use designation around the airport to accommodate employment supporting development.

CHARLES COUNTY’S ECONOMY It’s an exciting time in Charles County, Maryland. Our economy is strong; our businesses are growing and thriving; and new business activity is developing at a breathtaking pace. Big things are happening in Charles County, especially in the Town of Indian Head where a shared vision for renewal became reality, thanks to our community’s collaborative spirit. Once a bustling military town, Indian Head suffered decline after increased security around the Naval installation moved most base-related business behind the fence. That left the Town without contractors and local business without customers. In search of a solution, the Charles County Chamber of Commerce, the Military Alliance Council (MAC), the Economic Development Department, Town officials, State representatives, and other community leaders put their heads together. The result was an idea for an innovation center that would attract defense contractors and other businesses back into the Town. Today, that center is a reality, thanks to the leadership of the College of Southern Maryland who stepped up to make it happen. With public and private sector support, a once abandoned warehouse has been transformed into CSM’s Velocity Center and is attracting the attention of companies and organizations that want proximity to the base and its largest command, Naval Surface Warfare Center Indian Head Division (NSWC IHD), as well as use of the Velocity Center and easy access to clients through the Washington DC metro. The Velocity Center is 13,000-square-foot collaboration center with state-of-the-art conference facilities, classrooms, flexible workspace, and a maker’s space equipped with hardware for computer-aided design and prototyping, 3D printers, and subtractive machines. It’s a place for innovation, education, and collaboration, a place “outside the fence” where base personnel can work with customers and partners. It provides community education and workforce development. It’s a home for ideation and exploration. The Velocity Center caught the attention of the US Bomb Technicians Association (USBTA), a professional association of bomb disposal specialists with ties to NSWC IHD. Today, USBTA’s new headquarters is in the Town of Indian Head, just across from the Velocity Center in another renovated building, now known as the Maryland Technology Center (MTC). A new industry cluster is starting to take shape. USBTA has been joined by a number of member companies who have also established a presence in the Town. More are on the way. Federal agencies involved in law enforcement and national security are looking to

www.charlescountychamber.org

leverage these resources. And USBTA’s training events are bringing in bomb tech professionals from all over. As a result, it’s been said that Indian Head is becoming the focal point and country’s center of excellence for bomb and bomb disposal technology. The revitalization of the Town of Indian Head is just getting started, but it has already been a success, thanks to the teamwork and collaboration among public and private sector stakeholders who came together to turn a vision into reality. This collaborative spirit has fueled the County’s economy in general and supports our entrepreneurial ecosystem. Our economic development team now includes a Business Retention and Expansion Manager to strengthen engagement with our existing businesses. Our Business Growth Advantage Program – BGAP – teaches entrepreneurial skills to businesses owners and connects them to mentors and resources. We have partnered with colleagues and specialists to provide regular training webinars. And the implementation of our Disparity Study recommendations is opening doors for local businesses to contract with County Government through our Small Local Business Enterprise (SLBE) program and increasing opportunities for women- and minority-owned businesses through our Minority and Women Business Enterprise (MWBE) program. The Charles County Economic Development Department and the Charles County Chamber of Commerce are partners in supporting our local businesses and working collaboratively to keep our economy strong and growing.

Rich with history and charm, La Plata serves as the county seat of Charles County. Founded in the 1870’s, it was the mighty railroad industry that put rural La Plata on the map leading to its eventual incorporation in 1888. According to local legend, the Town of La Plata was given its name by Colonel Samuel Chapman, whose family owned 6,000 acres of land that would become the areas of La Plata and Port Tobacco. In his travels, the Colonel was so impressed with the La Plata River in Argentina that he decided to name a portion of his own property “La Plata” after the river. Since La Plata's inception, it has grown into a beautiful and charming town with hundreds of small businesses and several of the county's major employers including Charles County Government, Charles County Board of Education, University of Maryland Charles Regional Medical Center, The Facchina Group of Companies, and The Wills Group. La Plata is a thriving art community. Visitors and residents can enjoy the arts ranging from a number of galleries, the Port Tobacco Players Theater, Roctoberfest, Summer Concerts, public art murals, and the Charles County Arts Alliance Artsfest. Great things continue to happen in La Plata. La Plata holds the distinction of being the First Bird City in Maryland as designated by the state's Maryland Bird Conservation Partnership. Additionally, La Plata is a Tree City USA, Main Street Maryland affiliate, Keep La Plata Beautiful Affiliate, Priority Funding Area, a Sustainable Community, and a Southern Maryland Heritage Area. Home to over 10,000 people, La Plata is unique and authentic, built upon strong community ties.

OUR TOWNS AND COMMUNITIES

VILLAGE OF PORT TOBACCO Port Tobacco’s heritage predates the arrival of European settlers by a thousand years. It was home to the Potopaco Indians from whom the village derives its name. In 1727, Port Tobacco was established as the seat of government for Charles County. During the colonial period, it became the second largest seaport – after Baltimore – in Maryland. The merchants of Port Tobacco developed a large trading system with Scotland and England, bringing goods from around the world to the area. Many notable Revolutionary figures came from Port Tobacco, and George Washington visited on several occasions. He stayed overnight in the village on April 19, 1760. During the Civil War, Port Tobacco was a center of activity for smugglers and Confederate spies. George Atzerodt, one of the conspirators of the Lincoln assassination who was tried and hung, resided in town at the Chimney House (c.1780), which still exists today as a private residence.

30

In 1989, Port Tobacco Village was added to the National Register of Historic Places as an Historic District, and several buildings in the Village are individually recognized as well. Among these buildings is the Burch House. The house – bought in 1874 by Washington Burch, a former slave who established a school for African American children – is open to tourists seeking a glimpse of how life was lived after the Civil War. Today, the Village of Port Tobacco – the smallest municipality in Maryland – is a quiet residential community with prominent historic structures dating back to before the creation of our nation. The quaint town is surrounded by farmland and national, state and local parks that offer a rural yet picturesque destination for contemplative tourism and recreation. Welcome to the Village of Port Tobacco, an ideal location for a visit into America’s past.

CHARLES COUNTY AGRICULTURE Almost half a century removed from a tobacco-focused farm economy, Charles County, Maryland has a rich agricultural history. Located within the rapidly developing D.C. Metro Region, Charles County is experiencing growth in a historically rural region, and local agriculture continues to have a positive impact on the local economy. Although the agricultural landscape looks quite different now, these industries are still an integral part of Charles County, and buying locally grown products and visiting farms is a great way to support the local economy. Agriculture has been a mainstay of the region’s economy and culture for many years. But since the decline in the region’s tobacco industry, the County’s agricultural landscape has become far more diversified. Today, Charles County is home to 385 farms across more than 41,000 acres. These totals have been on a steady decline for 30 years and are nearly half what they were several decades ago. Regardless of the shrinking footprint, revenues have almost doubled within the local agricultural industry. Charles County is now home to a variety of agricultural enterprises including – but not limited to – field crops, vegetables, fruits, livestock, equine activities, cut flowers, and agritourism. With sprawling natural resources and spanning shorelines, Charles County is also home to healthy forestry and seafood industries.

With over three hundred miles of shoreline, mostly along the Potomac River, Charles County’s natural resourcebased economy spans to our local waterways. Local watermen harvest fresh fish, shellfish, and crabs that can be enjoyed seasonally at numerous local crab houses and restaurants Through farm stores, stands, farmers markets, community-supported agriculture (CSA) subscriptions, and retailers or restaurants that source locally, accessing and locating farm fresh produce and value-added agricultural products is easy. Some farms open seasonally to the public for agritourism operations that include pick-your-own produce and flowers, hayrides, and other fun family activities. The diversification of Charles County agriculture has presented many opportunities for the community to buy local.

The college meets this task everyday by collaborating with governments, businesses, and community partners to build coalitions and meaningful partnerships.

34

Last year, CSM launched its 2021-2024 Strategic Plan and introduced four clear goals: improving student progress and completion; ensuring equity in all programs and services; building and sustaining the regional workforce pipeline; and fostering and sustaining a highperforming employee culture. CSM is the “region’s first choice for accessible, inclusive, and innovative education that transforms communities.” Workforce Development CSM served more than 14,000 credit and continuing education students in 2021 at its locations in Hughesville, Indian Head, Leonardtown, La Plata, Prince Frederick and the Center for Transportation Training in La Plata. The regional Hughesville campus is located on 74 acres and hosts the college’s Center for Trades and Energy Training (CTET) and the new Center for Health Science. The Regional Hughesville Campus represents a significant milestone for not only the college but also for the region by creating a campus that is centrally located and accessible and that will provide specialized offerings and programs to serve workforce development in a more cost-effective and convenient way. The 30,000-square-foot CTET includes labs, classrooms and administrative space and provides direct access to specialized training in career fields that have substantial growth potential, including HVAC, Electrical, Construction, and Plumbing. The CSM’s new Center for Health Science Building is scheduled to open in fall 2022. Consistent with the college's vision, the CSM nursing program is the region's first choice for accessible, inclusive, and innovative nursing education. The program is dedicated to decreasing healthcare disparities through the development of a strong, diverse nursing workforce and is proud of the diversity in its nursing program which is consistent with the

2022-2023 Business Directory & Community Guide


demographics of the Southern Maryland area and exceeds national data regarding the nursing workforce. The college’s role in the economic revitalization of the Town of Indian Head received national recognition when the CSM Velocity Center, and related efforts to strengthen the region, was presented with a silver award from the International Economic Development Council (IEDC) in the real estate and reuse category. Most recently, CSM earned the Sustainability Growth Award from the Maryland Department of Planning for the Velocity Center. The center is a place of innovation, learning, and collaboration, offering conference, work, and meeting spaces, and a Makerspace for community use. The Velocity Center is a catalyst for economic development. CSM likes to refer to it as one giant professional playground for innovation. It is approximately 13,000 square feet and located outside of the Naval Surface Warfare Center in Indian Head. At the Velocity Center, Navy scientists and industry leaders can interact with students, have a place to tinker or conduct unclassified research, as well as be a place where the community will have access to CSM courses, neighborhood children can attend CSM Kids’ and Teen College and our STEM students and clubs can explore possibilities in the state-of-the-art Makerspace. The Makerspace is equipped with a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters, subtractive machines, soldering irons and open-air space for robotics and prototyping.

emerging staffing needs. It instills confidence that the region is a place where companies can grow and thrive, in turn creating jobs and fueling Southern Maryland’s economic engine. Transforming Lives and Student Success When you enroll at CSM, you don’t just get an education; you get the support of a community of faculty, staff, and fellow students committed to helping you succeed in your studies and beyond. CSM offers an academic course structure that allows students to concentrate on fewer courses over a shorter time period by splitting the fall and spring semesters into two 7-week sessions. The Focus to Finish program allows students take half of their classes in the first seven-week session and the other half in the second seven-week session. This change allows students more opportunities to enroll (rolling admissions) in classes each year. CSM offers high quality, affordable degree and certificate programs with tuition and fees that are about half the cost of that of a state university. For students who seek a bachelor’s degree, CSM offers more than 200 transfer agreements with more than 60 partnering universities nationwide and in Paris, France. The college also joined five other Maryland community colleges to form the Maryland Education Alliance (MEA) to further boost students’ opportunities to earn associate degrees or certificates across the state. https://www.csmd.edu/news/csm-joins-marylandscommunity-college-education-alliance-to-open-statewide-p athways-for-student-success.html.

HISTORY CHARLES COUNTY – A WEALTH OF HISTORY Charles County has a rich and diverse history. Established in 1658, it was named for Charles Calvert, the third Lord Baltimore. However, its origins go back to the Potopacos, a native tribe that was part of the Piscataway Confederacy. For at least 16,000 years, Native communities had occupied the Chesapeake region. The Piscataway people spoke an Algonquian dialect. They were farmers, fisherman and experts at harvesting nuts, berries, plants and roots to sustain and heal themselves. By the mid-17th century, as English settlers began encroaching on the native lands, they abandoned their riverside towns and migrated from Maryland. Today, descendants of the Potopacos have blended into the Piscataway Tribes and are preserving the heritage and culture of their ancestors. The thriving heritage of Charles County can be seen through its many historic sites. Historic Port Tobacco, the second county seat, is the location of the reconstructed courthouse of 1819 as well as Stagg Hall, built in 1766, Chimney House, built in 1780, and the Burch House, the home of Washington Burch, one of the first AfricanAmericans to become active in local politics and his community after the Civil War. Near the Port Tobacco

www.charlescountychamber.org

Village is Mulberry Grove, the reconstructed home of John Hanson, the first President of the United States under the Articles of Confederation to serve a full one-year term; Habre de Venture, the home of Thomas Stone, a signer of the Declaration of Independence; Ellerslie, the home of Daniel of St. Thomas Jenifer, a signer of the United States Constitution, and Rose Hill, the home of Dr. Gustavus Richard Brown, one of George Washington’s physicians, and Olivia Floyd, one of the most daring female confederate spies of the Civil War. La Grange, in La Plata, was built by Dr. James Craik, another of George Washington’s physicians and birthplace of Josiah Henson. Josiah Henson escaped slavery, founded a settlement and a school in Canada and was one of the models for “Uncle Tom” in Harriet Beecher Stowe’s novel Uncle Tom’s Cabin. In the Western section of the county is Smallwood’s Retreat, the home of General William Smallwood of the American Revolution and fourth Governor of Maryland. Nearby is the birthplace of Matthew Alexander Henson, codiscoverer of the North Pole. The Dr. Samuel Mudd House, in Waldorf, is the site where John Wilkes Booth and David Harold hid overnight after Dr. Mudd set Booth’s broken leg following the assassination of Abraham Lincoln. Historic Rich Hill, in Bel Alton, was built by Dr. Gustavus Brown, a Scottish merchant, in 1729, the second oldest structure in Charles County. It was also on this property where Booth and Herold hid for four days before escaping into Virginia.

HISTORY

Of the early Episcopal Churches in the county, Durham Parish, in the Western section of the county, is the oldest public building in the county; Port Tobacco Parish, was originally built in Port Tobacco and moved stone by stone by oxcart and reconstructed in La Plata, and William and Mary Parish, in Wayside, was occupied by Union soldiers during the Civil War. History still flourishes in the towns of La Plata and Bryantown, as well as in Benedict, the site of the landing of the British for their march toward the nation’s capital during the War of 1812. Charles County is the home to many scenic by-ways, from the Religious Freedom trail, to the John Wilkes Booth escape route, to the trails of the Underground Railroad. One of the most scenic views in all of Charles County is from Chapel Point at St. Ignatius Catholic Church, where the confluence of the Port Tobacco and Potomac rivers meet. Charles County can boast a wealth of history. As evidence of its past, it has played a significant role in the heritage of the great state of Maryland as well as that of the United States of America.

LIVING IN SOUTHERN MARYLAND LIVING IN SOUTHERN MARYLAND The region known as Southern Maryland includes Charles, Calvert, and St. Mary’s counties. The area is rich in history, culture, activities and even wineries! Southern Maryland has a rich military community as there are four military installations nearby: Naval Air Station, Patuxent River, MD; Naval Surface Warfare Center, Dahlgren Division, Dahlgren, VA; Naval Surface Warfare Center, Indian Head Division, (IHDIV), Indian Head, MD, and Naval Explosive Ordnance Disposal Technology Division (NAVEODTECHDIV), Indian Head, MD; and Joint Base Andrews, Clinton, MD. With hundreds of miles of scenic waterways, our area is known for its boating, sailing, and fishing. Local waterways include the Chesapeake Bay, the Patuxent, Potomac, Wicomico, and Port Tobacco rivers along with the natural beauty of the Zakiah, Kerric and Mattawoman swamps. Our Maryland State Parks and county recreation areas offer dozens of environments for camping, hunting, hiking, picnicking, as well as sporting activities and special events. Enjoy free summer evening concerts on the lawn of the La Plata Town Hall or take a sunset stroll along the boardwalks in Leonardtown, Solomons, Chesapeake Beach or Indian Head. The possibilities are endless. In addition to our local historic sites like St. Mary's City, Port Tobacco, Calvert Cliffs, and the beautiful Sotterley Plantation, unlimited "big city" leisure opportunities are within an easy commute of Southern Maryland. Families can see the sites of Washington D.C., our nation’s capital. The Smithsonian Institution has a variety of museums filled with treasures from around the world. The National Mall, the White House, the Jefferson Memorial, and the Lincoln Memorial are close by. Be sure to visit the National Archives, which houses original copies of the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution. The young and the young at heart enjoy the National Zoo, home to a pair of

48

rare Giant Pandas. The Kennedy Center, which hosts the greatest performers from our nation and from around the world, is also home to the National Symphony Orchestra. Washington has several great theaters with a full season of shows available for your entertainment. Southern Maryland offers a great selection of location, style, age, and price range to anyone seeking a home. Old established neighborhoods, historic Victorian-era homes, farms, town homes, and newly constructed planned communities are all available to accommodate the growing popularity of Lord Baltimore's little colony. Waterfront cottages, single family homes, town homes, and condominium apartments are available for sale or rent in Southern Maryland. Lot sizes range from less than a quarter acre to over 100 acres in the more rural areas. Select from home sites that are heavily wooded and private, or cleared and ready for swing sets. With miles and miles of shoreline, an abundance of prime waterfront homes await you. Boating and fishing enthusiasts will enjoy boat slips, piers and beaches that are often included with Chesapeake Bay front or river front homes overlooking the scenic Patuxent, Wicomico, or Potomac Rivers. Commuters who work in Northern Virginia and Washington, D.C. find a better quality of life in the rural atmosphere of Charles, Calvert, and St. Mary's Counties. Families can get larger homes and more land for their dollar than they can in the Washington, D.C. metropolitan area or Northern Virginia, so give Southern Maryland a look for your next home.

Head to a dockside restaurant where you can kick back with a cocktail and feel yourself unwind as you look out over the water and anticipate the boat-to-table bounty you’re about to receive. While crabs are a big part of our culture, generations of Charles County residents consider stuffed ham a holiday tradition. This classic Southern Maryland dish is believed to date back to the 17th-century and has both British and Afro-Caribbean origins. The ham is salted, deboned, and slit into several places before being stuffed with a mixture of cabbage, kale, onions, and seasonings. The ham is then wrapped, boiled or baked, sliced, and served cold. Purchase a salted ham at Hancock Family Farm or Bowling Green Farm to try this delicacy at home. The gateway to Southern Maryland: land of natural and historic treasures The possibilities for outdoor adventure here are endless, and we invite you to explore at your own pace. Drift through tranquil waters in the early morning light, pedal down a rail trail after lunch, and pitch a tent on a historic property. Discover acres of conservancy-protected land and miles of open spaces and shorelines along your way. You only get 52 weekends in a year. Make them LEGENDARY. When was the last time you embraced play? Here in Charles County, we offer countless opportunities for fun for all ages. STAY AND PLAY - THE ULTIMATE CHARLES COUNTY BUCKET LIST Fossil hunt at Purse State Park The southern shores of Maryland hold more than great seafood—they are also well-known spots for fossil hunting! Comb the beach at Purse State Park, and you’re sure to leave with a pocket full of shark teeth. Kayak through the ghost fleet of Mallows Bay Don’t miss spending time exploring Mallows Bay (read more on page X), our most popular tourist attraction. The opportunity to paddle through sunken warships is incredible enough on its own, but the serene waters and bald eagles soaring overhead make this truly an unforgettable experience.

Catch a baseball game at Regency Furniture Stadium Fun fact: Regency now boasts an electronic umpire—the same technology used in MLB. Watch “TrackMan” display stats on top of the press box while joining the rest of the “Crustacean Nation” in rooting for the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs! Touch history at Dr. Samuel A. Mudd House After shooting President Lincoln and fleeing Ford’s Theatre, John Wilkes Booth sought medical help for his broken leg at the home of Dr. Samuel A. Mudd. On your gripping tour of this tale of murder and conspiracy, you’ll grasp the same banister as Booth as you walk upstairs to see where Booth recovered. Reel in a bass from our rivers and lakes Anglers from near and far travel to Charles County for world-class bass fishing. Pick up some tackle and drop in a line at any of our waterfront parks. There’s no better way to unwind than with a pole in hand! Traverse the length of the Indian Head Rail Trail What’s a bucket list without a real challenge? Hit the 13 miles of this flat, paved path perfect for biking, rollerblading, or some serious strolling. The path takes you through a variety of scenic views, from forests to farmland to wetlands. You’re sure to set sights on a deer, wild turkey, or bald eagle along the way—you might even see all three! Give a standing ovation at Port Tobacco Players You’re in for a treat when you take in a show at Port Tobacco Players. From the moment you take your seat to when the final curtain closes, you’ll feel the drama and excitement of this passionate theatrical community.
