Near this place the first courthouse in Prince George's County was erected in 1698, which served as the center of county government until 1721, when the county seat was moved to Upper Marlborough. The village of Charles Town was built on a tract of land called "Mount Calvert Manor" granted in 1658 to Philip Calvert, 5th Governor of Maryland. Of the original village, only the Manor House, Mount Calvet, remains.
