Experience life in 17th-century Maryland! Step onboard a tall ship, play colonial games, and
wander through an Indian witchott. The plantation household will show you what's growing in
the kitchen garden and introduce you to heirloom livestock. Find out how archaeologists and historians piece together the past to reveal this colony's remarkable legacy of democracy and toleration. Lord Baltimore's capital, in beautiful tidewater Southern Maryland, stands ready to be rediscovered.
