The museum’s exhibits feature hundreds of artifacts and educational displays.
Charles County Public Library 100th Anniversary. In 1922, the first public library in Charles County opened with just 3,000 books that were delivered by train from Enoch Pratt Free Library in Baltimore City. One hundred years later, Charles County Public Library has expanded to four branches that house over 200,000 educational materials and serve over 70,000 Charles County residents.

The Hogan administration assisted in funding the trail’s completion in order to allow more Marylanders to experience the state’s natural beauty.
