    Welcome

    Welcome to the Chancellor's Point Project, a program being developed by Historic St. Mary's City and St. Mary's College. Chancellor's Point Project is an exploration in progressive museum and classroom practices, through which we aim to merge exhibition and environment with education. The Project will be rooted in the St. Mary's River landscape with its pristine location and applied, physical nature of future programs.

    The Chancellor's Point Project Committee plans to offer interdisciplinary courses and projects initially though the St. Mary’s College of Maryland’s Museum Studies and Environmental Studies programs. In an effort to revitalize Chancellor's Point as a host for educational and community-oriented projects, our initial plans are to offer the location as a site for field classes and research.

    Consider this website and the forthcoming proposal to be an invitation to participate in the development of the Chancellor's Point Project. We welcome all thoughts and views. Nothing yet has been institutionalized, and we welcome ideas that will help bring our students, our studies, and our communities together at Chancellor's Point.

    There are many avenues through which anyone can get involved. Proposing research, a course, or workshop is one way; joining the Chancellor’s Point Project Committee another. Students are invited to the Chancellor's Point Development Club, the Chancellor's Point Student Advisory Committee, or to respond to the Chancellor's Point Blog—a constantly updated page about ongoing developments. St. Mary's Projects, independent studies, field trips, experiments, art projects are all welcome and encouraged. You can find a list of contacts on the “About Us” page.

    We hope you will find the educational, museum, and community potential at Chancellor's Point as exciting as we do, but we should not understate what a treasure the land is itself. With almost a mile of undeveloped waterfront, extensive beaches, forests and fields, this 66-acre Natural History Area is more than a natural resource, it is a tremendous world of its own. Come to Chancellor's Point and see why we find it so important to bring these lost lands back to the people of St. Mary's County and beyond.
