Charles County is one of the oldest counties in Maryland, and it is full of historical sites. Dr. Samuel Mudd, the doctor who treated John Wilkes Booth after he shot President Lincoln, lived here. Mudd’s home is now a museum. Port Tobacco, the county’s original seat, was a regional center for social, political, and economic activity. Today, the Port Tobacco Courthouse shares this history with visitors.
Charles County is also home to professional baseball – the Southern Maryland Blue Crabs play here – and seasonal events entertain visitors every year. Farmer’s markets and you-pick farms will give you a taste of what Charles County has to offer. Regional parks offer places to play and enjoy the outdoors. It’s hard to get bored in Charles County!
