Historic St. Mary’s City is now taking registrations for their Adults Only tour on July 14th with two scheduled times at 5:00 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. The tour will be an hour in length, and will give visitors a glimpse into the sordid side of Maryland’s past, based on real life events found in court records from the colony. Those attending will travel back in time to a plantation in the 1600’s where the mistress of the house lives up to her title, the master of the house enjoys his liquor, and the indentured servants are up to more than just work. Due to adult content, attendees must be 18 and over, proof of age will be checked prior to the tour. To make a reservation or for more information, call (240) 895-4990 or firstname.lastname@example.org. The cost of the program is $20 per person ($15 Friends members).
