On Saturday, June 23, 1984
The Honorable Harry Hughes,
Governor of Maryland
and
His Royal Highness,
Edward, Duke of Kent

dedicated this place, site of our State's first Settlement and first Capital to the memory of the first colonists who came here from England in 1634. To those courageous Marylanders their successors dedicate this resurrected St. Mary's City and pledge all Marylanders to its preservation and veneration.
This plaque was donated to the State's 350th anniversary celebrations by the Maryland Heritage Committee, General Orwin C. Talbott, Chairman, and accepted on the 23rd of June 1985, by the Honorable John Hanson Briscoe, Chairman of the St. Mary's City commission.
