Settled in 1634, Port Tobacco was once Maryland's second-largest seaport and was listed on early world maps. The town served as the seat of Charles County from 1727-1895, but its history extends from the prehistoric Native American inhabitants of Potopaco to the current residents of the town. The story of Port Tobacco is fascinating! It includes Native Americans, missionaries, colonists, revolutionaries, assassins, spies, slaves, merchants, farmers, an arsonist, and everyone in between! Visit us and explore this historic village, and learn more about the facts and legends of Historic Port Tobacco Village, including one of Maryland’s oldest ghost stories, The Legend of the Blue Dog. 

You may explore on your own, or take one of our Guided Tours with our knowledgeable staff. The guided walking tours include the Port Tobacco Courthouse, Stagg Hall, and Burch House (Closed in the winter). Bring the whole family for a step back into time as you learn more about the history of this quaint village overlooking the picturesque Port Tobacco River.
