Photo Tour   
Sotterley Plantation, on the banks of the Patuxent River, is the only remaining Tidewater Plantation in Maryland open to the public. Designated a National Historic Landmark, the site includes the early 18th century Mansion, a rare slave cabin, and a full array of outbuildings on nearly 100 acres of rolling fields, gardens, and riverfront. The authentic 18th and 19th century architecture reveals Chesapeake Bay plantation life in the form of a customs warehouse, smokehouse, corn crib, brick necessary, and plantation schoolhouse. Visitors can also walk along Sotterley's estuarine shoreline, woodland trails, meadows, an antebellum orchard, and colonial revival gardens.
