Ben Cardin - Senator for Maryland

Southern Maryland

Southern Maryland was the first settled in 1634 with the arrival of passengers from England at St. Clements Island.  A drive through Southern Maryland, which includes Calvert, Charles and St. Mary’s counties, often provides visitors with a glimpse of rolling farmland, stretching for miles and bordering along the Chesapeake Bay.  Calvert County also contains Calvert Cliffs, Maryland’s only nuclear reactor, and one of our nation’s largest liquified natural gas import facilities at Cove Point.  St. Mary’s County is home to the Patuxent Naval Air Station, which provides research and development technology that is important to support our military mission.
