Tudor Hall is a large, Georgian style house built to its present size around 1817. Today, it is one of two properties owned by the St. Mary's County Historical Society. It contains the society's business office, the research library and archives (on the second floor), book store, and museum collection. The other building is the Old Jail, which is the society's headquarters and also serves as a museum. Evidence strongly indicates that George Washington not only visited the house but slept there one night. The building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973.
