Hands-on demonstrations and activities centered around the topic may include corn grinding; a discussion of sailor’s diet and illnesses they may have contracted due to lack of nutrients; how to set a colonial table; cooking on board a seventeenth-century vessel, and using plant documentation to learn about the “original organic.”

There is no pre-registration for the event, activities, and demonstrations will be ongoing throughout the day.  For more information, call (240) 895-4990 or email Programs@DigsHistory.org.. 

The cost is affordable: $5 per child for children age 5 and older, with one accompanying adult free (!). Each additional adult will be charged $10. Children younger than 5 are free.

Historic St. Mary’s City is a museum of living history and archaeology on the site of Maryland.


The Southern Maryland Chronicle is a local, small business entrusted to provide factual, unbiased reporting to the Southern Maryland Community. While we look to local businesses for advertising, we hope to keep that cost as low as possible in order to attract even the smallest of local businesses and help them get out to the public. We must also be able to pay employees(part-time and full-time), along with equipment, and website related things. We never want to make the Chronicle a “pay-wall” style news site.

To that end, we are looking to the community to offer donations. Whether it’s a one-time donation or you set up a reoccurring monthly donation. It is all appreciated. All donations at this time will be going to furthering the Chronicle through hiring individuals that have the same goals of providing fair, and unbiased news to the community. For now, donations will be going to a business PayPal account I have set-up for the Southern Maryland Chronicle, KDC Designs. All business transactions currently occur within this PayPal account. If you have any questions regarding this you can email me at davidhiggins@southernmarylandchronicle.com

Thank you for all of your support and I hope to continue bringing Southern Maryland the best news possible for a very long time. — David M. Higgins II
