For over 250 years, many different people have lived, worked and visited these grounds, and now it’s your turn. The land, the house, the barns, the history are all yours to unravel, to explore, to experience, to enjoy, to make your own. Let us know how we can assist you on this adventure.

Maxwell Hall is a 1768 colonial house, located within Maxwell Hall Park’s unspoiled 692 acres. The park was acquired by Charles County in 2007 and is managed by the Charles County Parks and Grounds Division. The park has 15 miles of hiking/equestrian trails with access to the Patuxent River. The trails are open every day of the year, however, the historic house is open to the public for special events listed on our Events page or by appointment.
