St. Mary's City, Maryland is one of the most interesting and beautiful places in America. In 1633, it was the home of a Piscatawy Indian village and year later, it was the home of the first permanent settlement in the colony of Maryland. The colonists purchased the land from the natives who were already planning on relocating due to recent incursions by more aggressive tribe belonging to the Susquehannocks in the north. A rare example of a win-win in early colonial history. Today the area is made up primarily of two entities: An every expanding living history museum made up authentically reconstructed structures and artifacts and the most beautiful of public honors Colleges, St. Mary's College, in the nation. And then there is also this Episcopal Church!
