Happy Maryland Day! … it’s the 381st anniversary of English settlers landing at St. Mary’s City.
Ceremonies, activities, historical pageants and other commemorative events are held annually in Historic St. Mary’s City in St. Mary’s County, the first colonial capital of the province and the site of several reconstructed provincial and colonial structures including the first State House with a tourism/historical agency which runs operations and provides interpretative information.
Maryland Day is a legal holiday in the U.S. state of Maryland. It is observed on the anniversary of the March 25, 1634, landing of the first European settlers in the Province of Maryland, the third English colony to be settled in British North America. On this day settlers from “The Ark” and the smaller “The Dove” first stepped foot onto Maryland soil, at St. Clement’s Island in the Potomac River.
