We visited the Sotterly Historic Plantation and what a wonderful experience. This plantation was in operation from 1910 until 1960 and you will see the farm from the owners eyesYou get your tickets to tour the home at the Gift Shop (near the parking lot). We walked over to the beautiful home and had a wonderful young male docent who took us on a tour of the home. The rooms are beautiful and the stairway a true work of art. After the tour, we had plenty of time to walk the grounds. First, we walked down to the river and saw the front of the home - what a stark contrast. We visited all the "outbuildings" and the garden. What a truly enjoyable experience to imagine yourself living there during those long ago days.

Trip Advisor A must see!

What a wonderful piece of history! You can almost imagine what life must have been like as you explore the house and grounds. The slave cabin was a real eye-opener.

Beautiful gardens of period herbs shrubs and flowers. The history of a plantation from both a planters viewpoint and the slave's as well buildings were well preserved and refurbished. The naration on the walk through is from the different views of those who worked and lived on the plantation through a period before even Mount Vernon to the mid 20th century,describing each owner and their contribution to keep the plantation working. A great look at the doings through American history. It is sometimes confusing to know which family was living at which period of time and what artifacts are from that period.

Trip Advisor Interesting history!

It is an old plantation in Southern Maryland. The public tour was nice, grounds are beautiful and well kept. Even has an old slave quarters showing the disparity between them and the owners. That part was informative but sad.
