Civil Society


The field of education is represented by many historic sites in Prince George’s County, from the one-room schoolhouse to the state university. Examples include Friendly School, Seabrook School, and Berwyn Heights Schoolhouse. Other examples include surviving Rosenwald schools built for African-American students in rural areas in the 1920s and 1930s.


Many important Prince Georgeans achieved renown in the field of law, and their houses and offices survive as reminders of these endeavors, and the prominence of the Upper Marlboro bar. These include The Marietta House and Law Office (the home of U.S. Supreme Court Justice Gabriel Duvall).

Special activities, programs, and events are held at our Historic sites throughout the year.
