King's Reach SiteFor more than 300 years, farmers have grown crops in this field. In the 1980s, archaeologists noticed historic objects on the surface in one area of the plowed field. To learn more about early rural life in Maryland, they carefully collected the objects, and then excavated the site. Their work revealed a colonial-area tobacco plantation, including the remains of the owner's house and a smaller residence for slaves or servants. A fence connected the two structures. In the early 1700s the plantation was called St. Leonard's, but in the 20th century this area became known as King's Reach.
