Plantation encompasses nearly 95 acres of rolling
meadows, gardens and shoreline. It is the only
remaining Tidewater plantation in Maryland that is
open to the public with a full range of visitor
activities and educational programs. Sotterley's
significant architecture features the 1703
Plantation House using post-in-ground construction,
a rare c. 1830’s restored Slave Cabin, and a full
array of outbuildings set amidst rolling fields,
Colonial Revival gardens, and riverfront.
