"Freedom of Conscience"In the early 1880s, Marylanders began to commemorate the "lost city" of St. Mary's as a place of special significance. The 300th anniversary of Maryland's founding in 1934 brought renewed attention and enthusiasm. The State House replica was built, a huge celebration drawing over 100,000 people was held, and this statue was commissioned. It honors religious toleration, a right secured to all citizens of Maryland by "An Act Concerning Religion," passed by the General Assembly in 1649.
