According to the website, Native Americans originally occupied the area that would later become the Rackliffe family's 1,700-acre plantation. Nowadays you can watch reenactments of coastal Maryland plantation life at the site and learn about the Native Americans that lived on the land, too. "In its time, Rackliffe House has witnessed marauding Spanish galleons, Barbary pirate ships, and English men-of-war," the site says. "The house has stood through the Revolutionary War, the War of 1812, and the Civil War." [wp_ad-camp_1]

St. Martin's Episcopal Church

Where: 11413 Old Worcester Highway (Showell, MD) Contact Information: Click here for the website Take a peek into the county's religious history at St. Martin's Episcopal Church! The website states that it was built between 1756 and 1763 for the Worcester Parish. After that, the church was infrequently used, especially after a new church was erected in Berlin. Because of the disuse, by the 1970s, the church was not in good shape, to say the least. But, in 1993, the St. Martin's Church Foundation was established and began a restoration project on the church to bring it back to its former state! Now, the church is a museum that is open to the public and holds events throughout the year.
