Full History of Summerseat Yet To Be Told...

Full History of Summerseat Yet To Be Told

by Guy Leonard, Staff Writer for County Times

For perhaps more thank 300 years Summerseat, a farm now nestled off of Route 235 in Mechanicsville, has seen St. Mary's County history come and go but the board of directors of the non-profit entity that now runs the land are trying equally hard to not only preserve it but to unmask its real story.

Animal Information

Summerseat has served as home to a countless number of farm animals to include horses, cows, pigs, sheep, goats, and even llamas!  Many of the current farm animals have come to Summerseat either by donation or as gifts. Birds of flight include geese, ducks, guinnea hens, doves, and a large variety of chickens.   

Our wild residents (grazing the fenced in pastures) include American Buffalo and Barbados Sheep, giving Southern Maryland a variety of animals only seen at Summerseat! 

At one time, Summerseat had considered serving as an Animal Sanctuary for the local community.  However, due to funding constraints, Summerseat is no longer able to care for wounded or sick animals.  

The following resources are available for those interested in animal adoption resources or wild animal care:

  • The Animal Control Office: 301-475-8018
  • The Tri-County Animal Shelter: 301-932-1713
  • The St. Mary's Animal Welfare League: 301-373-5659
