Architectural Tour for SMCM Students

Sotterley Plantation welcomed the Historic Building Curator of Historic St. Mary's City, Peter Rivers, and a group of St. Mary's College of Maryland students for a unique tour experience yesterday afternoon. Sotterley's Restoration Manager, John O'Rourke, shared facts and findings on this architectural tour of the 1703 Plantation House. Entering through the original front door on the water side, students had the opportunity to see parts of the structure rarely seen. Glimpsing below floor boards and crawling into some tight spaces, they noted areas of original construction and ongoing restoration efforts.
