History & History Related Items

Port Tobacco Village history:

Native Americans first lived in the area in their settlement known as Potopaco. The English came to colonize in 1634. The town was founded in 1727 and was once the county seat. Once the seat was moved to La Plata in 1895, the town has shrunk considerably. As the Port Tobacco River changed course over the years and ships became much larger, the town was cut off from the coastline. Then, when bypassed by the railroads, it declined even more.

The original courthouse has been rebuilt and is used as a historical museum. Another notable historical edifice is the Ignatius Church and cemetery.
