  • Chapel Fund

    This fund supports the reconstructed chapel of 1667 which represents the founding place of the Roman Catholic faith in British North America & religious liberty for all colonists in Maryland. Donations will be used to furnish, preserve, maintain & interpret the chapel.

  • The Maryland Dove Fund

    This fund supports the maintenance & interpretation of the Maryland Dove, a re-creation of the smaller of the two ships that originally settled the colony of Maryland. The ship operates as a shore-side & traveling attraction for visitors as well as a working vessel that helps to preserve the maritime heritage of the 17th century.

Your donation is an invaluable gift to the support and preservation of a National Historic Landmark and of Maryland’s heritage.
