Overlooking the scenic Patuxent River, the plantation encompasses nearly 100 acres of open fields, gardens, and shoreline.  Sotterley Plantation is the sole surviving Tidewater plantation in Maryland that is fully interpreted and open to the public.  Construction of the now rare “earth-fast” main dwelling began in the early 1700s.  The house grew over time into a rambling residence featuring fine period woodwork.  Highlights include the shell alcoves in the drawing room and the hall staircase. Over 20 outbuildings are part of the site’s 300 plus year evolution including a Customs Warehouse, Smoke House, and an original Slave Cabin dating to the 1830s.  The site also features a museum shop and nature trails.  Accessible by water, call for information.
