Happy Maryland Day!

On this day, in 1634, 150 European settlers landed on a small island in the Potomac River. Those settlers went on to found a colony which later became our little state.

March 25, now known as Maryland Day, is an official state holiday commemorating the landing and celebrating the birth of the "Old Line State", the "Free State", "Little America," Mary's land.

Happy Birthday, Maryland!
