Historic Churches & Religious Sites

Maryland’s first colony is where the concepts of religious toleration and separation of Church and State were introduced to the New World.

Our religious heritage sites and colonial churches speak to this time of experimentation. Follow the Religious Freedom National Scenic Byway which runs through St. Mary’s and Charles Counties. Our later churches also have compelling stories to tell.

Religious Sites & Historic Churches

Many early churches in St. Mary’s County combine lovely settings, fascinating architecture, and amazing stories. If you visit the churches and wish to tour the interiors, please make advance arrangements through their administrative offices.
