In a Nutshell

The historic section of Charlotte Hall just off of Route 5 is home to the St. Mary’s County Welcome Center and the Charlotte Hall Veterans’ Home. They occupy the site of Maryland’s oldest military academy. The multi-use Three Notch Trail leads to the Amish market at the Charlotte Hall Library - a great place to pick up seasonal produce and a whoopie pie. Route 236 winds through Amish country to Budds Creek, home to three major motorsports venues and Wicomico Shores Golf Club with greens along the Potomac River.

Trip Tip

Dent Chapel on the grounds of the Charlotte Hall Veterans’ Home is among Maryland’s finest examples of rural Victorian Church architecture.
