Historic Sotterly Plantation, established in the 1700's. Beautiful grounds but with a heavy, dark and sad slavery history. "History, despite its wrenching pain, cannot be unlived, but if faced with courage, need not be lived again". Maya Angelou

No tour available but we just followed the map and found our way around. The mansion was closed but the grounds were still great to walk around and check out. Not too busy; the only people were volunteers working in the garden.

A wonderful plantation setting in Maryland with beautiful surroundings. Go in late October for the "Ghosts of Sotterley" tour.

The plantation is not what it used to be. It is in serious needs of repair and should have better staff. There were no signs to find the wedding area, there was not enough fans in the barn where the reception was so it was...More

This is a very nicely maintained historical site with beautiful grounds and excellent signage. It does a great job of tracing the history of the plantation and the slave trade that permeated the history of this part of Maryland. The price is reasonable for the...More
