The St. Mary’s County Museum Division includes three sites that let you explore and experience the heritage, beauty, and rich history of the county where Maryland began. Be inspired by moving stories, entertained by lively festivals and special events, or just reconnect with nature on some of the regions’ most beautiful shoreline. Climb the Potomac River’s oldest lighthouse at the Piney Point Lighthouse Museum and Historic Park and bask in the spectacular setting on the shores of this beautiful river. Enjoy a foray into maritime history in the adjacent museum and hear the stories and struggles of the local community during the era of segregated education at Drayden African American Schoolhouse located nearby.
