Maryland Day celebration at Historic St. Mary’s City
The public is invited to celebrate the founding of Maryland during the 384th Anniversary event to be held Saturday, March 24 at the Inn at Brome-Howard House.

After the ceremony, the new exhibition at the Brome Quarter entitled, “Struggle for Freedom: African American Life in St. Mary’s City in the 19th and 20th Centuries” will be opened. This exhibit tells the story of African American people during the period of enslavement, post-emancipation, and into the 20th century. The program will also include the presentation of HSMC’s highest honor – the Cross Bottony Award – to the MCAAHC , whose grant support made it possible for HSMC to preserve and interpret the Brome Quarter where enslaved and, later, freed African Americans lived for more than 200 years. The symbolism of the Cross Bottony medal is that is an element of Lord Baltimore’s crest first issued in 1625, and used for the Maryland state flag and as part of the official Maryland seal. Admission to the Museum will be free in honor of the day. For more information you may contact 240-895-4990 or All sites will be open from 10 a.m. to 4 pm.
